A lovely sunny Sunday afternoon was the perfect setting for the recent formal opening of our new nametile area in Canterbury's Westgate Park.

Situated in a lovely location on the bank of the river within the Park, we now have thirteen nametiles, each one remembering a very special baby, with a further six recently ordered. We were delighted that Rev Helen Connoll, former chaplain at Canterbury Hospital and someone who supported a great many families following baby loss, agreed to perform the official 'unveiling' and lovely to see so many families coming along.

We have permission to add two further boards to the wall and will soon need to add the second one. Thanks to Canterbury City Council which has been extremely supportive, and helped to make this idea become a reality. Looking ahead we are hoping we may be able to hold a small 'Wave of Light' during Baby Loss Awareness Week in October - watch this space!

If anyone else would like to order a nametile for Canterbury, or Ashford (in the Ashford Baby Memorial Garden), or Faversham (at the West Faversham Community Centre) , here is the link to the order form.

We are delighted to share our plans to have name tiles available in Canterbury. With support from Canterbury City Council, we hope to create a small area alongside the river in Westgate Park with wall mounted boards where local families can have name tiles for their special babies.

We have worked closely with the council and are currently awaiting formal planning permission which we hope will be granted very soon.

The tiles will be the same as the ones in our Ashford garden, and will cost £40 each. If you would like to have a tile in Canterbury, please get in touch by filling out our order form here.

This is a very exciting project for us, and we are very pleased to be able to offer families in Canterbury a local place to remember their special babies.

We had a fantastic day at the Turner Centre in Margate today for International Women's Day. There were lots of stalls and we were able to raise awareness through lots of conversations.

It was lovely to meet so many people and share our work with them.
