Following on from one of our open days where we showed local funeral directors from Edd Frost & Daughters and the Co-op Midcounties Funeralcare around our Barrow, we had another visit on Thursday this week, where we welcomed 5 area managers from Co-op funeral services to hold a meeting in the safari tent, a lunch of homemade sandwiches and puddings, and a tour of the Barrow.
It was the coldest day of the Autumn so far, but luckily the heaters sufficed, along with lunch.
As with other visitors, they were unsure what to expect when they went to the Barrow, and agreed that it’s impossible to explain exactly what the Barrow is like and how overwhelming and amazing it is once inside.
Other teams from the Co-op have already contacted us to visit, having heard their good reports.
Our Safari tent is available for any funeral directors, celebrants and anyone else with an interest in the Barrow, to hold meetings here and to view the Barrow to see for yourselves what we have created here as an alternative resting place and funeral venue.
