A Memorial for the dead.

Many people have lost people they loved during lockdown, whether they have died from Coronavirus or other causes. When a funeral has been attended by almost no-one, there has been no wake, there may have been no last goodbye, the death seems sadder than ever to
many people.
It has been suggested that a temporary quiet space could be made in the churchyard where people could leave a message, or bring an art work or similar to remember their loved one.

What form should this take? Suggestions include a garden, ribbons on a tree, or a fountain. If you have any ideas, please send them to
