    We are delighted to say how successful our memory tree was this Christmas. With over 80 tags placed onto it in memory of loved ones who have died, the tree looked quite lovely. With the addition of a number of ceramic decorations coloured in by children, we couldn't have asked for a more fitting tribute to those who have died.
    The tags have now been taken from the tree and where possible, returned to the families who provided them, to place onto their own tree next year. A donation will also be made to Lewis - Manning and Streetwise.

    More and more we are being asked for different ways that people can remember a loved one. Something personal to each individual. We are delighted to be working with Helen from 'Charlie & Pops' who has developed some beautiful pieces, and is now working on some cremation jewellery which will be unique to Chester Pearce and Harmony Funeral Services. We have a number of samples in our Westbourne funeral home. Please feel free to come and look.

    Chester Pearce is delighted to have been able to assist Lewis - Manning Hospice with their tree of lights following the mindless vandalism which occurred recently. With the kind donation of new lights, Chester Pearce has shown its support by providing a star which now sits atop the tree in the park at Ashley Cross, Lower Parkstone. Please show your support by visiting the tree which is in place to remember those who have died from cancer and other illness, and the families who have been touched by the wonderful care provided by Lewis - Manning Hospice.
