Lights of Love 2019

Remember someone special this Christmas and dedicate a light in their memory

Lights of Love is for everyone who has someone they wish to remember at this special time of year.

At Christmas time our thoughts often turn to those who are no longer with us to share the festive season. Through Lights of Love, the whole community join together to remember and celebrate the lives and memories of our loved ones. Lights of Love is not exclusive to those that have accessed the services at Primrose.

Every year Lights of Love helps us all to remember those who are no longer with us. To have a light shining on one of our special Christmas trees is a visual and symbolic way of keeping memories alive, whilst also helping to ensure we can continue to care for people in your local community when they need us.

As Christmas approaches, we look back on happy memories, but it can also bring with it some sadness and grief. At Primrose, we understand how important it is to remember those who have died and to peacefully reflect on their lives.

You can dedicate as many lights as you wish to, and we shall record each dedication in one of our remembrance books which are placed around our Christmas trees in Bromsgrove, Redditch, Rubery, Primrose Hospice and at other various locations within our community.

This year, we will be holding four very special remembrance services which everyone is warmly invited to, new for this year is a Carols by Candlelight service which is being held at Primrose on the 19th December.

To have your loved one included in the order of service booklets at one of our remebrance services please send in your dedication by Saturday 9th November.

The remembrance books are updated each week to include the dedications received up to and including Saturday of the previous week.

Please make sure your dedication reaches us by Saturday 7th December, to be included in the final book before Christmas.
