The People's Award

We have just heard that we were the runners up in the Natural Death Centre's South West region section for natural burial grounds.  We did not even know there was one so this was a rather nice surprise!   Apparently it was a very close run thing between us and the winner.  It is worked out on the number of feedback forms returned by our families and what they say on them.  So thank you very much to everyone who returned one and for what you said.  They are returned to us in batches from the Natural Death Centre when they have looked them over and we always find it very useful finding out what people have experienced here.  It also means that our service is being monitored by an outside body which feels quite right.  Next time we will try to be the winner because then we get entered in the National Competition.  So any suggestions about how we can do things better please email us.  

Some of the trees are breaking into leaf now as the sun gives occasional hints of the warmth which we hope is to come.
