Tree of light is me­mo­rial to lost loved ones

Macclesfield Express - - BUSINESS SME BUSINESS TIPS -

LOST loved ones will be­come shin­ing lights this Christ­mas when fam­i­lies re­mem­ber them on a special ded­i­ca­tion tree.

Fam­i­lies are re­mem­ber­ing peo­ple who have passed away with a special ded­i­ca­tion on a Tree of Light at Mac­cles­field Ceme­tery.

Res­i­dents have been col­lect­ing stars from the ceme­tery lodge and the Vis­i­tor In­for­ma­tion Cen­tre at the Town Hall to ded­i­cate them to the mem­ory of a loved one to be placed on the tree.

There will be a poignant cer­e­mony to cel­e­brate the lives of the loved ones re­mem­bered on the tree. It’s being run again this year by Or­bitas, the coun­cil’s wholly-owned be­reave­ment ser­vice com­pany.

The cer­e­mony of re­mem­brance will fea­ture a choir singing songs in trib­ute to loved ones and Christ­mas carols to join in with be­fore the Christ­mas tree lights are turned on.

Dur­ing the event, the lights will be switched on to sym­bol­ise the il­lu­mi­na­tion of the mem­o­ries of loved ones at Christ­mas time.

For more in­for­ma­tion call Or­bitas Be­reave­ment Ser­vices on 01625 383948 or email be­reave­mentser­vices@ or­bitas.co.uk.

The Tree of Light cer­e­mony is on Fri­day, De­cem­ber 9, at 4.30pm.
