Tribute ser­vice forloved ones

East Kilbride News - - NEWS - Niki Ten­nant

Peo­ple from South La­nark­shire who have lost a loved one can re­mem­ber them at a spe­cial ser­vice.

The an­nual Christ­mas me­mo­rial ser­vice at South La­nark­shire Cre­ma­to­rium will take place on Sun­day be­tween 2pm and 4pm.

The ser­vice – which has been part of the tra­di­tion of the cre­ma­to­rium since 2007 – has been de­signed to mark the mem­o­ries that are spe­cial to this time of year; whether by light­ing a can­dle, adding a per­sonal mes­sage to a me­mo­rial tag to be hung on the Christ­mas tree or sim­ply re­flect­ing qui­etly.

All those who are be­reaved are wel­come to join in the ec­u­meni­cal ser­vice, not only those who have held ser­vices at the cre­ma­to­rium.

East Kil­bride Cen­tral South coun­cil­lor John An­der­son is chair­man of the com­mu­nity and en­ter­prise re­sources com­mit­tee.

He said: “Our ser­vice is a spe­cial way to re­mem­ber loved ones at a time of year when our losses are of­ten felt most keenly.

“And we ex­tend a warm in­vi­ta­tion to ev­ery­one who feels they could ben­e­fit from the event to come along.”
