The Alan Hudson Day Treatment Centre is inviting you to join them at a special service in Wisbech on Sunday 24 November, before the town’s Christmas lights are switched on.

The Christmas Memorial Service, led by Reverend Canon Matthew Bradbury, will be held at St Peter and St Paul Parish Church on Church Terrace (PE13 1HP).

The service – organised by W & WG West Funeral Services and W Bailey & Son Funeral Services (both based in Wisbech and part of the Dignity Group) – starts at 2.30pm and lasts for around an hour. There will be well-known hymns, songs and readings.

Those wishing to remember a loved one, can write a message or the name of a loved one on a star. These are then quietly placed on a tree in the Church, before it is lit up for the festive period.  It’s a lovely opportunity to celebrate the festive season and remember someone you love.

Everyone is welcome, including families and people of any faith or no faith. Our colleagues from the Alan Hudson Day Treatment Centre will be part of the service, with our Matron, Michelle doing a reading and Gill, our volunteer Chaplin on hand to support families, carers and friends.

Michelle adds:

“We’re really looking forward to the service and hope that everyone feels welcome to join us. It’s a very friendly service and a special way to remember loved ones at, what can be, a difficult time of year. After the service, I would like to invite you to meet me and my colleagues at the back of the church, to find out more about the vital support we provide to people living with advanced serious illness or life-limiting conditions in the Fens and to discover more about the Treatment Centre’s recent extensive refurbishment, which has transformed facilities at our North Cambs Hospital home.”

There will also be festive refreshments at the back of the church.  Once the afternoon has drawn to a close, attendees are invited to follow on to Market Square and watch the town’s Christmas light switch on at 4pm.For further details, please see below.
