Eddleston Cafe Conversations - To Absent Friends

Sunday 1 November, Eddleston Village Hall

Eddleston Cafe Conversations is being developed as a resource for the community. It will provide a non-judgmental space for people to ask and discuss the big questions about living, dying and grieving. It is built on the understanding that the community is made up of people with different experiences and expertise who, through sharing, can help support each other through challenging times.

At this inaugural event, people will be invited to remember Absent Friends in any way that they find comforting, such as through poetry, music, pictures, humour, or silent reflection. Candles will be lit and participants will be invited to contribute a painted stone which will be laid in a special place within Eddleston Village following the event, as a lasting tribute.
