MORTONS Funeral Directors is opening its doors to the people of Bromsgrove and Redditch with its annual Tree of Light Memorial Service at 3pm on Sunday, December 2.

The funeral directors will be inviting the public to remember loved ones they’ve lost in a special 45-minute service at its Bristol Road South head office.

Guests attending the ceremony will have the opportunity to write a message of love on a memorial star, which will then be placed on Mortons’ giant Christmas tree.

Sarah Case, Mortons’ assistant managing director, said: “Christmas is always such a poignant time of year for those who have lost someone close to them, but it’s also a time to give thanks and to reflect about those who are no longer with us.

“Having an opportunity to place a memorial star on the tree means those memories can continue to shine out over the festive period.

“It’s a wonderful time of year to remember those we have loved and lost, and we are privileged to help people share their memories. 

“The joining together in the act of remembrance and celebration brings comfort to everyone.”

Carol singing, along with the Band of the Droitwich Corps of the Salvation Army, is taking place that day with non-alcoholic refreshments available.

Lee Evans and Kirsty Krober will also be joining in with the festivities, performing classics such as Kirsty McColl’s ‘Days’ to fit in with this year’s theme of relationships and how they shape us.

Seats are allocated on a first come, first served basis so guests are encouraged to come early to avoid disappointment.
