Festive event to remember loved ones

Christmas is a time for good food, gift exchanging and fantastic decorations, but imperatively, it is also a time of reflection and acknowledging one's family members - the living and the dead.

This year, the Lights of Love service warmly invites you to Newport's St Thomas Square on Friday December 6th, in order to collectively remember those who are no longer able to be with us during the festive season.

Attendees will be treated to a number of Christmas carols, inspirational readings and prayers as part of the event, as well as a shoulder to cry on for those who need it.

Take time to make a dedication to those who have passed on as the minister for Newport ignites the Light of Love, which commemorates the dead on an annual basis during this very special time of year on the Isle of Wight.

But Christmas is also a time for appreciating the living, and there will be plenty of singing and celebrating afterwards to reflect that.

Local opera singer Jayne Carpenter will be leading the proceedings, with everyone welcome to join in as she leads a rousing chorus of Christmas classics in aid of the Severn Hospice.

There will also be a performance from the experienced Newport Male Voice Choir, whose toe-tappingly seductive rhythms will ring through the night as part of the festive event.

There will be two services on the day, both of which will last for around 45 minutes and take place on December 6th from 3pm and 6:30pm in St Thomas Square.

Lights of Love offers folks the chance to take a break from the busy everyday life in order to remember the people who have influenced their lives. Whether you have lost a loved one recently or would simply like to recall an old friend, this is the event for you.ADNFCR-3083-ID-801666521-ADNFCR
