Guernsey Sands November Community Meet

Wednesday 13 November 2019; 7.30 - 9.30pm / St Stephen's Community Centre Meeting Room

Guernsey Sands (Stillbirth and Neonatal Death Society) has a local support group who can offer emotional support and practical help if your baby has died during late pregnancy, at birth or shortly afterwards.

Our friendly and relaxed monthly community meets are an opportunity for bereaved parents, relatives and close friends to meet with others who have been through a similar experience.

We aim to meet every month from 7.30pm-9.30pm. You are more than welcome to turn up on the day but if you wish, you can confirm your attendance by phone or email.

The November meet is on Wednesday 13 November at St Stephen’s Community Centre Meeting Room. There will be no community meet in December due to holding our Lights of Love event on the 6th December, so at the November community meet we will be making our tree tags for Lights of Love and other Christmas themed memorial ornaments.
