Wells Market is very popular on Wednesdays and we have secured a stall to raise public awareness on May 16th. We will be offering small kits for people to grow their own sunflower (compost, pot and seed), explaining the theme ‘Small Actions, Big Difference’. We have also designed small cards with the words "What to do? what to say?"
Registered Nurses and Marie Curie volunteers will be on-hand to offer help and advice as well as a company specialising in writing wills. Being more open about dying and taking small actions such as writing a will can all help make a big difference to ensuring people live well and die well.
