Lights of Love

Event Date

Various dates and venues (see below).

Event Details

Whether your loved one received the care of St Michael’s Hospice or not, young or old, local or further afield, all can be remembered with Lights of Love.

We are looking forward to welcoming you back to join together in the simple act of writing a personal message on a star which you can add to your own tree, or one of our special Lights of Love trees. This year we will have eight locations across Hastings and Rother where the Lights of Love celebrations will be held.

You are warmly invited to attend one of our events this December, at each you will be invited to hang your dedications onto the tree in an act of remembrance and to view your loved one’s details in a Book of Remembrance.

Most of the trees used for Lights of Love have kindly been donated by the award winning Little Down Farm Christmas Trees.
