Hospice Hope's Lights of Love event is returning to the Ferrers Centre at Staunton Harold next month.

After two years of being on You Tube during the Covid pandemic, the event takes place at the South Derbyshire venue on Sunday, December 4.

It will give people the opportunity to hang a personalised tag on the Ferrers Centre's courtyard Christmas tree in memory of a loved one, who will be in their thoughts during the festive season. 

A short service, lead by Rev Dr Tim Philips of Ashby Trinity Church, will be held near to the tree with carols, readings, music and time for reflection. 

The tags remain on the tree until January 6.

Now in its 20th year, taking part in Lights of Love is easy. 

Tags for people to write their personal message on are available from Ravenstone-based Hospice Hope – these are returned to the charity prior to the event so they can be laminated and ready for collection on the Sunday it takes place.

Lights of Love is free to attend, donations for each tag are welcomed and help the Hospice provide a range of support services for free to local people.

Hospice Hope has thanked the Staunton Harold Estate Office and all the shop owners at the Ferrers Centre for their ongoing support of this event.
