PRECIOUS memories of children lost before, during and after childbirth will be remembered in a new event this month.
The event, held in aid of those who have suffered tragic losses will provide the opportunity to light a candle and contribute to a memorial book.
There will also be poetry readings and suitable guitar music played by musician Paul Newson.
Mrs Joyce Fannon, 69, secretary of Weymouth and District Life group said: “It gives the opportunity for people who have not had a memorial and would like to go to one, people for whom loss might be very recent and raw and painful to come together.”
This is the first of its kind in the Weymouth area and was inspired by a similar gathering in Dorchester, organised by Julia Terry.
Mrs Fannon said: “Julia came to give us a talk and we were so impressed that we took it from there. We wanted to try and get something like it for the area. We plan to hold the afternoon once a year at a separate time from Dorchester so that two events are available if people wish to go have them”.
