Details coming soon for the next Memorial Mile!
The Memorial Mile is back for a third time and we would love you to help us make this one bigger than ever. We walk at a gentle pace from our Chapel on Delamere Street to Winsford Cross Shopping Centre. All are welcome, Young and old, dogs and even horses. We walk to remember and celebrate the lives of those we have lost. At the town we will have a short service hosted by celebrants and ministers from the towns churches. There will also be music, a cake stall and the Bubbles to Heaven will be back. We will also raise money for a local charity on the day. What we really need is you, so please fill out the form below to register your interest, its your Memorial Mile.

What is the Memorial Mile?
Every two years we organise a walk in memory of those we have lost.
The Memorial Mile is primarily about remembering someone you have lost but it's lovely if we can help raise money for local charities at the same time.
There is no entrance fee.
On the 25th November 2017 we walked our first Memorial Mile. We walked again in 2019.
Here's what happened in 2017:
2017's charity was the Phoenix Support Group at St. Lukes Hospice. They help children and young people who have lost a parent.
We gave everyone a name tag to say who they are walking in memory of.
We provided people with bubbles as during the service we released them to heaven/the skies.
We left our Chapel at 11am following the route to the Winsford Shopping Centre, where we will had a short service. Everyone was then invited back to the Golden Lion for refreshments.
We were then accompanied on our walk by a Bag piper and were met in the town centre by the Salvation army band and local singer Sam Lyon.
