Have your say

Funeral directors will be using a pop-up shop in Melton to offer advice and guidance to members of the public who have any questions about dealing with funeral arrangements and bereavement as part of a national Dying Matters awareness week.

Jenny Barnes and her team from Richard Barnes Funeral Directors will be joined by colleagues from Co-operative Funeral Care Melton Mowbray and Co-operative Funeral Care Oakham in the former Show Zone unit in Melton’s Bell Shopping Centre tomorrow and on Saturday, between 10am and 4pm, encouraging people to take part in ‘The Big Conversation’ and talk openly about death, dying and bereavement.

Anyone can come along and there will be a free raffle and coffee morning as part of the awareness raising event.
