Grave Talk


For some people, it’s not easy to think about your own funeral. Talking about death, dying and funerals raises big questions that we need to face at some point, but it’s hard to talk to family and friends.
GraveTalk is a café space, where people can talk about these big questions, whether you are thinking about what you would like or you are a family or friend thinking how to ask the question
“what would you like done when you die?” and even using the word “die” can be difficult for some. The conversation is helped along by GraveTalk conversation cards
52 questions covering five key areas; it doesn’t offer solutions but does help to open up these types of conversations.
And tea/coffee cake and goodies help the conversation along! Everyone is welcome – just let us know if you would like to come so we have enough cake.
Sancroft Hall, Saturday 4” March 2023, 10am-12pm
Please RSVP to Maria: email OR leave a message on
01379 388493 that will be passed on.

Food Bank

The Food Bank is busier than ever so if you have tinned goods, pasta, sauce, puddings, etc (within date) they are desperately needed for many households struggling.
