Remembering Loved Ones in Memory Meadow

Remembering Loved Ones in Memory Meadow

A special remembrance event held by Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice Care on Saturday 24th March saw around 100 people gather together to remember their loved ones, at Memory Meadow in Guildford’s Stoke Park.

Memory Meadow is a special area in Stoke Park which is dedicated to loved ones who are no longer with us, and its colourful mix of beautiful flowers blooms every spring. Local charity Phyllis Tuckwell cares for patients and families who are living with an advanced or terminal illness, such as cancer, and holds a special remembrance event at Memory Meadow every year. Anyone who wishes to attend is invited to join them as they remember loved ones who have died but who are never forgotten, and celebrate their lives.

Those at the event listened to inspiring readings and joined in with uplifting songs. Afterwards, they were able to spend some time walking around Memory Meadow, thinking about their loved ones and reflecting on their memories. Everyone who attended was also given a Book of Remembrance, which contained dedications made by attendees in memory of their loved ones and which was a very special memento to keep.

Memory Meadow is situated at the Nightingale Road entrance to Stoke Park and is open all year round to anyone wishing to spend some quiet time remembering their loved one. Phyllis Tuckwell has also created an online Memory Meadow at memorymeadow.pth.org.uk, where anyone who wishes to can dedicate a flower or butterfly to their loved one and make a donation in their memory.

Every day Phyllis Tuckwell supports over 250 patients, relatives and carers – in their own homes, in the community, at the Hospice in Farnham and at the Beacon Centre in Guildford – through medical and nursing care, therapies, counselling, social work advice and practical support. To find out more about the care which it offers, or to make a donation to support its work, visit www.pth.org.uk.
