THE VALE Crematorium is helping local people celebrate Father’s Day by streaming a special tribute service through its YouTube channel.
The special service will be broadcast on Sunday, June 20 and local people are not only being invited to watch it but are also being given a chance to contribute.
Over the Christmas period, around 11,000 people viewed festive services of remembrance and the group followed it up with a special broadcast on Mother’s Day.
Catherine Linfield, site manager at The Vale Crematorium, said: “Having broadcast the special service for Mother’s Day earlier this year, it was only right that we did something for Father’s Day, too.
“Some restrictions still remain in place, so we felt that holding a national event would allow families to remember fathers, stepfathers, grandfathers and father figures wherever they may be in England, Scotland and Wales.
The service will be shown on Sunday 20 June at 11am and can be found by visiting the news section at www.thevalecrematorium.co.uk. It will also be available to view afterwards on the Westerleigh Group’s YouTube channel.
Anyone who wants to contribute three words for inclusion in the cloud at the end of the broadcast should submit them to https://bit.ly/3iaaBbw by Wednesday (June 16).
