This year our three Norfolk funeral homes in Attleborough, Diss and Wymondham are coming together to launch a new Norfolk Walk of Remembrance.
We are inviting families who have lost a loved one to join us at our annual Walk of Remembrance in Diss on Saturday 1st September.
“The walk is an opportunity to remember a loved one whilst enjoying the beautiful scenery on what we hope will be a memorable autumnal day” says Christian Fairbrother, Funeral Director at Rosedale Diss. ” The walk offers a time of reflection as well as acts of remembrance and is a way for the staff at Rosedale to give something back to our families, and to let you know that you are never far from our thoughts as well as supporting those who are bereaved in our local community”.
“ Everyone is warmly invited to join us, all are welcome and you do not have to be a family we have looked after at Rosedale, if you would like to remember a loved one, we hope to see you there” says Rhys Askham, Funeral Director at Rosedale Attleborough and Wymondham. “Please feel free to bring along your family and friends including four legged friends, so we can all take the time together to remember those we have lost.”
There will be a choice of two circular routes around the picturesque market town of Diss and the surrounding countryside in: – a three mile walk or a shorter route of one mile.
Following a one minute of silence, a dove release will mark the start of the walks, which begin at 11.00 am from The Pavilion near the Mere, Diss. During each walk, there is the opportunity to visit St Mary’s Church, where a special ‘Book of Remembrance’ will be in placed in which a message can be written and there will be an opportunity to light a candle.
