GV Hospice “Christmas Trees of Remembrance”    have once again enabled community members to have a ‘safe space’ to remember loved ones who have died.

One of the more difficult impacts of COVID restrictions for some, was the inability to be with family and friends during difficult times. Attendance numbers at funerals were limited, which made it very challenging to acknowledge and celebrate a person’s life, collectively, as we normally would.

Each year the Christmas Tree of Remembrance provides an opportunity to write messages – to say goodbye, to write how much the person is missed, and to say how much they are loved.

Thank to the GV Regional Libraries for the ongoing support of the Christmas trees of Remembrance. They will be available in Shepparton, Mooroopna and Tatura libraries from early December 2021.
