Lodge Brothers funeral directors Chertsey were recently cooling down at Cherstsey’s Black Cherry Fair.

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.”

On Sunday 2nd February 2014 the family support team of St John’s Hospice, Moggerhanger held a Service of Remembrance and Thanksgiving at the Parish Church of St John the Evangelist. Chere Hunter welcomed a large congregation to St Johns Church. After the lighting of a candle the congregation all joined in a bidding prayer. The hymn Love divine, all loves excelling was sung followed by a reading from Isaiah and the Act of remembrance. Members of St John’s Hospice staff read verses from the Roll of Remembrance which was interspersed with the reading of names of those who died over the past four months. After prayers a second hymn Lord, for the tears was sung. During the service children coloured in pictures and these were attached to blue and white balloons.

The balloons were released in the churchyard after the final blessing. Volunteers kindly served tea and cake after the service and members of the family support team, bereavement volunteers and members of the chaplaincy team were available to offer support. Jill Little, a member of the family support team said,”I find being involved with these services very rewarding and I am very grateful to Woodman and Sons for donating the balloons”.
