A Christmas remembrance service is being held in Hatfield tomorrow for anyone who is missing a loved one.

Funeral directors JJ Burgess & Sons are holding their Christmas remembrance service at Christ Church on St Albans Road, Hatfield, on Tuesday, December 4.

With doors open at 6.30pm for a 7pm service, it will be an occasion for bereaved families and individuals to remember those they have lost over the years, at a time that is perhaps the most difficult to endure alone.

The service will include the launching of the remembrance Christmas tree.

Proprietor Justin Burgess said: “We hope to decorate our remembrance trees with cards inscribed with special messages from the bereaved to their loved ones.”

JJ Burgess are asking for a minimum donation of £1 per card, available at the church and at their offices, to go towards a local charity very close to their hearts.

Just One Click Away (JOCA) is a mental health charity begun as in response to the tragic suicide of two players at Welwyn Rugby Footbal Club, and campaigns to remove the stigma of mental health issues and make mental well-being as important, and discussable, as physical fitness.
