As part of Dying Matters National Awareness Week, we'd like to invite you to join us in 'the big conversation'.  It's free.  It's informal.  But it's a chance to find out more about some of the many different options available and some of the choices you have.  You can ask questions or just help yourself to refreshments and listen.  It won't be depressing and there may even be laughter.  Dying really does matter, so lets get it out in the open.  
Please join us between 11am and 1pm at the Women's Hall in Billingshurst, for tea and cake and a chance to join in 'the big conversation'.  Talking about death and bereavement probably isn't your idea of a good conversation.  But it's more important than you think.  It may even be easier than you think.
Death is still very much a taboo subject.  But not talking to your loved ones about what you want or they would choose can have devastating results.  
Do you know what sort of death your loved one wants or what sort of funeral they would like?  Do you know what different funeral options are available?  Have you made known your wishes?
When someone is dying or dies, there's a lot to consider.  It's then that you realise that knowing what kind of death and funeral someone wants really matters.  It can save disagreements, unexpected costs and bring a sense of peace that your loved one's life ended the way they would want.
