In this section

The local community came together to attend an open day and dedication service on Wednesday 9 August at the East of England Co-op Funeral Services branch in Woodbridge.

The friendly team, including local funeral directors, civil celebrant and bereavement counsellor, were available throughout the afternoon for anyone wanting an informal chat.

Rector of Saint Mary's Church, Reverend Canon Kevan McCormack led the dedication service, attended by members of the local clergy, councillors, local business' representatives and members of local clubs. 

Toni Pearson, funeral arranger at the East of England Co-op Funeral Services said: "It's important to us that our community is aware of the support that is available to them during the very difficult time that follows a bereavement. This dedication service offered an opportunity for people to come together, ask questions and find out more about the services we provide over a cup of tea."

The East of England Co-op Funeral Services branch on The Quay, Woodbridge is open Monday to Friday from 9am to 5pm.
