Thanksgiving Service for Graham Cottee

Just a reminder that the service to remember and give thanks for the life of Graham Cottee is this Thursday (14th) at midday in The Kerith Centre. Everyone is welcome and we will be serving refreshments after the service.

The forecast for the next couple of days is only for light snow so that shouldn't be a problem. However, there are likely to be older folks in our community who would like to come but will struggle to make it on their own through the snow. If you know someone in that situation then please could you get in touch with them, make sure they're OK for food and heat and see whether they'd like help getting to The Kerith Centre on Thursday. If you personally can't help them then please give us a ring at the office and we'll try and arrange a lift for them. Also if possible please park in the town centre as Kerith parking will be limited.

I know that Val and the family have been overwhelmed by all the people sending cards, emails, facebook messages and phoning to say how much Graham meant to them, and expressing their sympathy for the family at this time. Graham's life touched so many other lives (mine included) and it will be a fitting tribute to remember him and give thanks for his life on Thursday.

Simon.
