Our “Missing You” Tree is back!

With Tiers and bubbles and precautions being put in place, is there someone you will miss especially at Christmas? Perhaps a loved one who has died, or someone far away that you won’t be able to visit over the festive period?

You are welcome to write their name on a star and hang it on our “Missing You” tree in the Churchyard to remember them. You may also like to say a prayer for them.

Stars are provided in a box by the tree – you may want to bring your own pen. Please observe Covid safety regulations.
