A CARE home in Bromsgrove will be holding its own remembrance event this month, to honour the friends and family members that have passed away while living there.

St John's Court will host the annual event on Friday, December 29, when visitors will have the chance to light a candle for their loved one and let off a balloon in their memory.

Care home manager Laura Wilkes said: "We hold this event to celebrate the lives of those who we have supported and remember them with their families and loved ones, who are invited to join us."

The celebration will start at 2.30pm with music and poetry, before the balloon ceremony on the front terrace, followed by afternoon tea.
