PHYLLIS Tuckwell will be holding its annual Light Up A Life Service, to remember those close to our hearts who have died and to celebrate their lives.

The service is always a special and poignant one, and last year was attended by around 800 people.

The event, which will be held in the grounds of the hospice in Waverley Lane, will start at 6.30pm on Monday, November 30.

Readings, carols and prayers will help those who attend to remember the good times they had with their loved ones and reflect on fond memories.

During the service, the lights on the hospice’s Christmas tree will be switched on, to represent the lives of those special people to whose memory the service is dedicated.

To dedicate a light on the tree, contact Phyllis Tuckwell on 01252 729446, or alternatively go to, where you can dedicate a light on their virtual night sky.

Parking will be available at the nearby South Farnham School but it is limited, after the service, all those who have attended are invited to South Farnham School for tea and mince pies.

The hospice has also launched an exclusive range of Christmas cards, featuring scenes from local towns. Farnham, Fleet, Guildford and Haslemere are all included in this year’s range, designed to appeal to local shoppers and visitors alike.
