Information about Debbie's funeral

Here is a bit more information for Debbie’s funeral tomorrow at 1pm
If you’re not familiar with the location, the church is on Church Street, Morecambe. Parking is limited, and we need to ensure there is space for the funeral cars, so the primary school playground next door will be open for parking, there is a pay and display car park on Matthias Street by the Town Hall, and also on-street parking in nearby roads.
Church will be open from 12 Noon, with music playing chosen by Debbie. We expect a lot of people, so there will be a video relay across in the War Memorial Hall . Please don’t worry about bringing children - Debbie would want them to know they are welcome. If you are worried about how they might cope with being in the service, you can always take them to the hall instead and follow things from there.
Tea, coffee and cake will be served over in the hall after the service finishes for those who don’t wish to attend the committal. Please note the journey to Dalton woodland burial ground takes about 25 mins, so we will be a while before we return to join in.
You are welcome to come to Dalton, but please bear in mind that parking is limited. If you are driving there, please try and make sure you take a full car, as that will help the pressure on space. The weather is currently good, so we don’t anticipate it being muddy. Even if it stays dry, do make sure your shoes can cope with the ground being uneven. If it rains, we’ll need something waterproof on our feet.
Whether or you can stay on after the service or not, please don't leave before signing one of our special memory books over in the Memorial Hall. We would really like to have a record of everyone who attended. Just writing your name is fine, but feel free to add anything else (or even draw something!) If you’re bringing children, please make sure you have a few crayons or felt tips for them to join in.
You can make a donation on the day, which will be split between St John’s Hospice and Messy Church. We will also be setting up something on Justgiving soon.

Thank you for all the cards and greetings. We can’t hope to respond to them all, but we have read them and they are appreciated.

Dear Mike,
Thank you for giving donation details, and also sharing the song which Debbie wrote.

Gareth and I have donated £25 (plus the "top up" to cover the card transaction charge, plus gift aid) to St John's Hospice. I'm sure that Debbie's memory will raise much-needed funds for her chosen good causes.

I'm sending this from our son's facebook account (as don't have our own).

Debbie was a wonderful friend to us, those many years ago.

Louise and Gareth
