Independent funeral directors Wathall’s has announced the return of face-to-face meetings for its local bereavement support programme.

For the first time since the start of the pandemic, Dandelions Bereavement Support, which is run by Wathall’s, is starting to meet in-person and is welcoming new members.

Dandelions offers free bereavement support groups, which meet every two weeks in Derby city centre and once a month in Ashbourne. There are also plans to extend the group network in the coming months.

Wathall’s bereavement support coordinator Fay Bloor, who runs Dandelions Bereavement Support, said: “Our existing group members are so pleased to be back to meeting up together.

“Although we have been meeting virtually when we can, it is not the same as being together in the same room where you can better see people’s body language and whether they need some extra support.”
