Loved Ones Remembered In Snowdrop Services
12:05am 2nd February 2014
Today you're invited to remember any loved one who's passed away at a Snowdrop Memorial Service in Dorchester (Sunday the 2nd of February).
Over the next couple of weeks these special services are being held around the county by the Weldmar Hospice Trust.
They're held in late winter- when snowdrops first appear- as Weldmar want to remind people that the hope and warmth of spring are on their way.
They say people can also remember privately if they wish at their Snowdrop Gardens and Walks, but they'll be holding eleven annual Services of Remembrance where anybody can come along.
Here's a list of where they'll be:
