gives us great pleasure to invite you to an open day as part of
National Dying Matters Week. The day will be an opportunity for us to
explore together our choices around death and dying with the hope of
bringing death back into the heart of our communities and empowering
us to make the most of our (finite) lives.
will also be a wide variety of related information, specialists to
talk to and examples of local sustainable coffins and shrouds.
will be a tour of Pentiddy Natural Burials with Anthony and Ele
Waters 11am – 12pm to include the opening of the new wild flower
A Death Cafe (in the straw bale house) will be hosted by Confortia with cake, drinks and discussion.
roundhouse will be set up as a space for quiet reflection. You are
also invited to bring a picnic and wander the community woodlands.
is no charge for the day but donations will be welcome to further the
work of Confortia (a not-for-profit organisation)
As part of our revised system of grass management, we will be putting our flock of Hebridean and Black Welsh Mountain sheep in to graze the burial site from the end of October for several weeks.
Visitors to the site should be extra vigilant at ensuring the gates are kept shut at all times please, and be aware that sheep really enjoy eating flowers…..
We suggest placing memorial flowers on a nearby tree or by the memorial board.
