Following the recent UK Government Briefing, Public Health England has confirmed that from Monday 17th May 2021, gathering limits at support groups, including AA, will increase to 30 people. (Different rules apply within Scotland and Wales.) Please continue to exercise caution and consider the guidance on risks associated with COVID-19 and actions you can take to help keep you and others safe.
Kim has sent through details of Sue’s funeral for people to watch at home
The details are as follows
The service will be held at St Nicolas Bookham which is her parish church on the 13th of May at 11am.
Due to Covid restrictions only 30 people will be allowed to attend and unless you have already been alerted that Sue has asked you to read or sing or perform a service sadly it is unlikely that you will be able to attend the church, however people are welcome to pay their respects at Randalls Road Cemetry, Randalls Road, Leatherhead, KT22 0AG.
Please also see below the link to view Sue’s service, if you are signed into YouTube you can also add comments whilst watching which will be available for the family to see afterwards
Should you have any queries about the funeral, please do not hesitate to contact Kim Lindsay, (On behalf of D.A. Lindsay & Sons, Funeral Directors) on 07517 410 482.
Sue will be buried at Randalls Road Cemetery, Randalls Road, Leatherhead, KT22 0AG. The committal will be at 12:30, and if people would like to pay their respects they are welcome to be in the grounds, and once the family have moved away they are welcome to pay their respects, however please please be aware of the requirement to comply with COVID regulations and not to risk Sue’s family being fined!
The funeral group will be at the maximum size, and all other groups of people must not be greater than 6, so please do not approach the group. Sue’s family are happy for people to be there but please do socially distance.
Flowers and donations
Sue has specified the following;
Family flowers only, preferably tulips, hyacinths, and other spring flowers. No lilies and definitely no chrysanthemums.
A wreath from Carol and close AA friends in the shape of an AA circle and triangle to be on my coffin. Donations in lieu of other flowers to be split between AA and a local night shelter for the homeless (A charity in Leatherhead called Start). Carol has therefore set up a PayPal pool for those who wish to contribute
