Lights of Love service postponed

By a County Press reporter

Monday, December 3, 2012


BUILDING work at the Isle of Wight Crematorium has meant the annual Lights of Love service has had to be postponed until next Easter next.

John Metcalfe, Isle of Wight Council deputy director for economy and environment said: "It is disappointing that we will not be able to hold the annual service at the crematorium over the Christmas period this year.

"Many parts of the building are currently subject to essential improvement and refurbishment works which it is not possible to work around so that the parade can go ahead.

"Staff had looked at alternate venues but none were available. We are sorry that we are not able to hold the annual parade this year but we hope to host an event around Easter, and the service will be hosted as normal next year."
