Chapel dedicated in special community service

In this section

The community in Acle came together for a special dedication service of the Chapel of Rest at the East of England Co-op Funeral Services, on The Street.

The dedication was led by the Reverend Martin Greenland from the Acle and Bure to Yare Benefice.

Other guests included those from the local Council, care homes, hospices, neighbours and members of the funeral profession, as well as The British Legion and local ministers. Visitors took the opportunity to talk to the local funeral team over tea and cake at the warm and welcoming premises. They were also able to meet with the East of England Co-op’s Civil Celebrants.

Funeral Arranger Tamara Mills, said: “The local community has been so welcoming since we opened our doors in July. Acle has a real community feel - I was really pleased to take part in Carol’s on the Green at Christmas, raising money for St Martins, and the charity night for Foxy Lodge animal charity in Hemsby. It’s great to feel so involved and meet the local residents.”
