Open Day and Smooth Jazz

A note for your diary …. On Saturday 18 June, we shall be holding our annual open day, but this year – to celebrate our tenth anniversary – we have the Hot Tone Rhythm Boys, a professional jazz trio, who will give us a couple of hours of wonderful mellow jazz.

At the Open Day, 11 am – 3 pm, there will be staff and volunteers on hand if you would like a tour of the natural burial ground and nature reserve, or you would be free to meander at your own pace, then come and ask questions.  There will also be an opportunity to sit down and talk through ideas, concerns and wishes with regard to funerals, for yourself or a loved one, looking at affordable, personal, graceful funerals.

At 3 pm, we then have the Hot Tone Rhythm Boys playing in the roundhouse, and families are welcome to bring chairs or rugs, sit on benches or wander, while the smooth jazz lifts what we hope will be a lovely summer’s afternoon.

There will be a tea stall, with teas, coffee, cordials, and cream teas with scones, jam and clotted cream, and maybe even strawberries.  We have a raffle on the day, with an amazing first prize : a 3 course meal for 4 at The Castle Inn, Edge Hill, including drinks, to the value of £200.  There are other great raffle prizes, and a tombola too.  There’s even a scavenger hunt for the children, with a prize for everyone who completes the course.  And it’s all in aid of The Friends of Sun Rising.

Do come and join us.  Or call if you have any queries.
