The Bereaved


Footprints is our monthly group for those who have been bereaved or suffered other loss. We meet in The Barn every second Tuesday of the month at 10:30am, with tea and coffee, biscuits and homemade cake, and sometimes have a short relevant talk. Everyone in the group is experiencing loss; Footprints offers friendship, understanding and gentle support.
