Plant a snowdrop in remembrance

Date Published: 10 January 2020

For a fourth year running the district council is delighted to be supporting the North Kesteven Snowdrop Event in aid of Child Bereavement UK. 

We invite families to take part in a Snowdrop Walk at Whisby Nature Park on Saturday, 8 February 2020.

In partnership with the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust the Snowdrop event will bring families together to remember those children that are no longer with us.

The event provides the chance for families and individuals to have time to remember, to feel support from their community and most importantly do something positive outdoors, that year on year will become more beautiful as the snowdrops multiply..

A grassed area, off the beaten track at Whisby Nature Park will become an area for those who wish to remember the lives of children they have lost.

Between 12noon and 3pm there will be an opportunity for families to plant snowdrops in memory of someone special who has died. Proceeds will be donated to Child Bereavement UK, which supports families and educates professionals when a baby or child of any age dies or is dying, or when a child is facing bereavement.

Snowdrop bulbs will be kindly provided by Pennells Garden Centre in North Hykeham, and will be available on the day for a small donation. Volunteers will also be on hand to help with the planting.

After planting your Snowdrop, you can take a walk around the area to take a moment and remember, or meet others who have been in a similar situation to your own.

There is a range of on-site facilities, including the Boardwalk Café at the Natural World centre.
