Christmas in Weymouth 2021
In the run up to Christmas and the end of 2021, there’s a variety of events to keep everyone entertained!

Light Up A Life Services
Weldmar Hospicecare is delighted to announce that local Light Up A Life services will return across Dorset this year, after not being able to go ahead last year due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Light up a Life is an opportunity to remember those closest to us – whether they were cared for by Weldmar, or not. When you dedicate a light, it will be placed on a tree in your chosen location and will shine bright until the 12th night.
Your loved one’s name will be included in their 2021 Book of Remembrance and you will also receive a wooden star to keep at home, or to hang on the tree at the service.
This year, after careful consideration, they are delighted to be able to hold physical services at seven locations across Dorset in December. For further information please visit the Weldmar website.
