Global Wave of Light

Next Event Will Take Place on Sunday October 15th from 17:45 GMT at Liberty Tea Rooms (Lighting Ceremony at 19:00 GMT at the baby memorial in Gadebridge Park)

Baby Loss Awareness Week finishes each year on 15th October with the global ‘Wave of Light’. 15th October is also International Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day and is recognised all over the world. We would like to invite you to join with us and other families across the globe and take part in the ‘Wave of Light’. Starting from 17:30 on 15th October, at the Liberty Tea Rooms (Hemel) and moving to the park for 18:45 at the entrance and 18.55 at the baby memorial, ahead of joining the global wave at 19:00. There will be light refreshments at the Liberty Tea Rooms and, as a group, we will make our way to the baby memorial where we will each light a lantern or shine a torch (preferred). We will remember the names of those who were taken from us too soon, read selected poems and have some time for personal reflection. There will also be an opportunity to meet other individuals each touched by this special event in different ways. All are welcome to join us including children, friends and families.

If you are unable to make it to Gadebridge Park on 15th October, wherever you are, you can still safely light a candle or lantern at 19:00 and join the global ‘Wave of Light’ in memory of all the babies who lit up our lives for such a short time.
