The annual ‘Black Cherry Fair’ has been taking place in the market town of Chertsey for many hundreds of years, and this year, local business Lodge Brothers Funeral Directors had a stall. But unlike most others on the Abbeyfields site, they weren’t selling anything!

District Manager, Richard Leachman, and one of his team of Funeral Arrangers, Tom Hoyles, gave away nearly 300 bottles of water to passers-by on what was another warm summer’s day.

Conversations did follow, many of them surrounding the topic of personal funeral planning.

Lodge Brothers has its own catalogue of bespoke funeral plans – pop into your local branch and ask the question!

Toys Donated to Bellfields “Little Fishes” Play Group by J.Monk & Sons

J.Monk & Sons of Guildford have always been very supportive of local community projects, so when we were approached by St Peters Shared Church, Bellfields to help out with the “Little Fishes” toddler group, we were only too pleased.

We began by sending out an appeal to our staff for the donation of toys suitable for 1-4 year olds. The response was overwhelming and the toys come tumbling in!

Bellfields is one of the most deprived areas in Surrey, so having somewhere safe for children to play and learn is a great community asset.

Beverley Lodge and Paul Bye spent a few hours with the children handing over prams, ride-on toys, dolls, a trampoline, building blocks and aprons for painting and crafting, amongst other items, and had a great time. The children were delighted to be able to help unpack the boxes and see what was inside.

Karen Collins who assists with the running of Little Fishes said, “It was really kind of J Monk & Sons to support our toddler group. We keep our attendance fees very low at just £1 per family, in order that children from underprivileged families are still able to come. Many of the toys that we have are old, and it’s hard for us to keep up with replacing broken ones because funds are very limited. To have new toys donated is brilliant and it really helps us keep things fun for the children.”

Remember your loved ones with a fitting memorial

March has been a busy month with celebrations all month round. Firstly Mother’s Day was celebrated in style this year with beautiful elegant window displays in honour of all the mothers who are no longer with us as well as the mothers who are. Some of  Lodge Brothers branches such as funeral directors Ashford decorated their windows using a pink-themed Mother’s Day display at the weekend .

One client brought in a card and was very grateful for having it included in the display in remembrance of her mum.

The poem “My Mother Kept a Garden” was displayed in the window which has some lovely thoughts about the caring  and nurturing nature of mothers.

 

St Patrick’s Day was marked on the 17th March 2016 at funeral directors Feltham

Traditionally, the day is celebrated by a visit to Church in the morning, followed by dancing and merriment when the  restrictions of Lent are lifted for one day! The display in the  window shows the Irish flag, a shamrock (hand  knitted by Pat) alongside a bottle of Guinness.

Easter is a time to celebrate with friends and family and a time to remember loved ones who have passed on. What better way to remember our loved ones than by doing something for members of the community. Sharing Easter in the community brightens so many people’s day especially the elderly.

Lodge Brothers recently had the honour of conducting the funeral of a very special angel, who was given a fitting memorial.

‘Amber’s Foundation’ To Be Founded in Memory of Amber Kathan

Lodge Brothers in Ashford recently conducted the funeral of 21 year old Amber Kathan, who’s life was tragically cut short less than a year after being diagnosed with Epithelia Sarcoma.

Before Amber died she told her mother Averil, about her dream of starting a respite project to help homeless people and those impacted by domestic violence. Unlike other mainstream charities, Amber’s idea centres around helping those who need help but who also have pets to care for too.

Mrs Kathan is now determined to take the project forward with the help of a group of friends who supported them both through the past year, aptly called Amber’s Angels. The charity will be called Amber’s Foundation.

Mrs Kathan explained: “Amber had the most amazing ability to get people to do things they did not think they could do. She was a people whisperer and an animal whisperer. She linked together some amazing people.”
