A FUNERAL directors has donated a plaque and a bird table for the memorial garden being created in Droitwich’s historic St Mary’s Churchyard to remember those who have lost their lives to Coronavirus.

George Crump and Son contributed the items to complement the planned large floral cross.

Work has started on that but there is still room for more plants if residents, community groups or businesses want to donate some.

Funeral director Caroline Brant said: “We think it’s a lovely idea – because of the limited number of people who could attend funerals those who have lost loved ones to Covid-19 have had to grieve in a very different way.

“This will give them a place to go to remember their friends and family.”

Kevin Hyett, who is responsible for the upkeep of the burial ground, said: “I want to thank George Crump and Son for their lovely donations and the Standard as Caroline called me after seeing the story in the paper.”

Kevin is now in the process of also getting a book of remembrance for people to write their loved ones’ names in with a message if they want.

And he wants people to know about the national Covid-19 Book of Remembrance where people can have their loved ones’ names and photographs recorded online.

It is part of a project with St Paul’s Cathedral and can be found here –https://www.rememberme2020.uk/

Anyone wanting to find out more should call Kevin on 07512 063937.
