St Catherine’s Hospice is launching its brand new Memory Meadow with a special, opening celebration service in Reigate’s Priory Park on Saturday 20 May at 11am.
The local hospice is inviting its local community to join them at their Memory Meadow, to witness the first flush of flowering and remember someone they love.
The non-religious celebration is open to everyone, regardless of whether their loved one was cared for by St Catherine’s, and will include specially chosen readings and jazz music.
St Catherine’s beautiful Memory Meadow sits close to the lake at Priory Park, and has been professionally designed by gardening experts, who’ve carefully selected traditional English flowers known to attract pretty wildlife like butterflies and bees.
Mary Skipper, Individual Giving Manager at St Catherine’s said: “At the hospice, we know many people get much needed comfort from remembering special times they had with a loved one, and we hope lots of you will be able to join us on Saturday 20 May. Following the opening, we hope our Memory Meadow will continue to be a calming place for people to spend time throughout the changing seasons, and celebrate the life and memory of someone they love. Our Memory Meadow is all about renewal, hope and life, and provides a place for people to take time to reflect and remember.”
As well as attending the celebration, people can add their loved one’s name to an online dedication book and receive a pack of wildflower seeds. Seeds will be similar to those planted at the meadow to help people create a mini-replica of the meadow in a place of their choosing.
