Our Bereavement Support Group meets on the last Saturday of the month at 12.15pm in Holy Family Parish Hall.

If you find it difficult to carry on after the loss of a loved one then why not come along and see if this will help you?

The group is open to all bereaved persons, not just members of our two parishes, so if there is someone you know who may benefit from the support of others why not share this invitation with them.

Phone Mary Marsh on 01942 701091 to find out more.
