June is nearly here and with that comes two wonderful opportunities to meet with the Good Funeral Guide team, make some new friends from the #GoodFuneralGuild and talk all things funeral related whilst eating cake.
A Guild Gig
On Saturday 3rd June from 12pm, #GoodFuneralGuild member and all round nice guy Toby Angel will be hosting the first Guild Gig at his recently completed barrow in Cambridge. For those of you who aren’t familiar with Toby’s interpretation of ancient burial barrows, redesigned to be beautiful and meaningful places for ashes to be stored, come along to see Willow Row. It has a profound effect on most of the people who visit it and is a welcome alternative to the (often) depressing crematorium rose garden.
There’ll be a BBQ, much cake (including Toby’s youngest daughter’s famous lemon drizzle cake!) and lots of friendly conversation from lovely #GoodFuneralGuild members. Bring along your children, dogs, sausages and spouses. You don’t need to be a #GoodFuneralGuild member to come along. The curious are very welcome!
If you’d like to come along, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
A Guild Gig
Saturday 3rd June from 12pm at Willow Row, Cambridgeshire
National Funeral Exhibition 2017
As Fran has already announced, we’ve raided our piggy banks and managed to fund a small stand at the National Funeral Exhibition at Stoneleigh Park in Warwickshire.
The GFG team – Fran Hall, Louise Winter, John Porter and the one and only Charles Cowling – will be serving up cake and conversation at the three day event from our small but beautiful stand.
If you’re going to be there and would like a break from the rows and rows of mortuary equipment, salesmen and free pens, then come along to chat with our team over a slice of complimentary cake.
We’ll in in Hall 1 on stand 146, hidden behind a mountain of cake (literally).
If you’re one of our recommended funeral directors, come along to our stand as soon as you arrive as we may have a little something for you. #GoodFuneralGuild members – don’t forget to wear your pin with pride!
If you haven’t registered for THE event of Funeralworld yet, you can do so here.
