Remembering Our Babies – Annual Events
“We love attending all of the social events and giving back when we can, thank you SPRING! xx“
SPRING’s Wave of Light Event, Sunday 15 October 2023
SPRING’s Wave of Light took place on Sunday 15 October 2023, at Poole Park by the War Memorial marking the end of Baby Loss Awareness Week.
Thank you to everybody who joined us to remember all the tiny lives lost in pregnancy, during or shortly after birth.
This event holds such a special place in our hearts and we hope the evening created a space for all our bereaved families to reflect and know they are not alone in their grief.
SPRING’s Christmas Remembrance Event, Saturday 25 November 2023
SPRING’s Christmas Remembrance will be held once again at St Mary’s Longfleet Church, Longfleet Road, Poole, Dorset from 3pm. Further details to follow.
SPRING’s Snowdrop Walk 2023
Every year in February, families who have experienced the grief of the loss of a baby at any stage of pregnancy, join us at SPRING’s Snowdrop Walk as a way of remembering their loved ones. This year, we came together at Upton House and Country Park where we wrote our babies’ names and messages on tags, listened to some readings, and had a moment of quiet reflection at the Winter Borders. As a simple way to remember the life of lost ones, SPRING provided some beautiful snowdrops for planting by our bereaved families before heading back to the Drawing Room for refreshments and the opportunity to connect and to meet with those who have travelled a similar path.
Thank you to everyone who joined us – it was a beautiful day for reflection, sharing and to remember our special babies.
Celebrating 25 years of our SPRING service
2023 is a special year for our SPRING support service as we celebrate our 25th anniversary.
We have been supporting parents and families who have sadly experienced the loss of a baby for nearly three decades and to mark this important milestone, SPRING held a special event at Merley House on Sunday 16 July.
This small but significant event was celebrated in its own special way. We were joined by supporters, both past and present who pitched up with their picnics and joined us on the back lawn for a few hours of children’s games, ice creams painting and entertainment.
It truly was a lovely day and we were do fortunate with the weather – thank you to everyone who came along to help us celebrate!
