SPRING’s Snowdrop Walk 2021

As the coronavirus outbreak continues to have an impact on all our lives, SPRING once again has to sadly announce the cancellation of our annual Snowdrop Walk on Sat 06 Feb 2021 at Upton Country House and Park. We apologise for any disappointment this may cause but please know that SPRING is still here for you, and we continue to hold our virtual Open Support Meetings and online counselling service, so please do get in touch if you need us.

SPRING’s Snowdrop Walk

Saturday 08 February 2020

Snowdrop Walk

Around 100 bereaved parents, relatives and friends attended SPRING’s Snowdrop Walk on Saturday 08 February at Upon Country House and Park. Despite the weather being rather inclement on the days and weeks before, on that day, the sun shone for us, making it a really beautiful occasion.

Our guests were invited to join us in the Drawing Room at the impressive country house and as always, were invited to write messages for their special babies as well as listening to poems that were read out by members of SPRING’s Steering Group, before walking down to the Winter Garden to tie the remembrance ribbon around a tree.

Despite the area being rather muddy from the week’s rain, we were able to plant some snowdrops to mark the occasion and enjoy the sunshine as we remembered our precious babies.

After the walk, tea, coffee and cake was served in Upton House creating another opportunity for bereaved families to come together.

Thank you to everyone who came along and made this such a memorable event. It truly was a lovely location to remember our babies and welcome the coming of spring.
