We have a vision of a death-friendly society in which death is shared and understood and the lives of those who have died are celebrated. By building a model of a free community led annual celebration of death and dying here in Somerset we hope the idea will spread across the country.
We are a group of people from the area with a passion to create a death friendly society. We are not 'experts' just individuals who have come together to make this happen.
These are underway! We are working towards another fabulous programme of events this time across the south Mendip area over the weekend of Friday 2nd, Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th November.
