Swan Memorial Service
Thu, 3rd Jan at 11:00 am to 11:30 amFree
We recently lost our beloved Hestercombe swan, who passed away after 22(ish) years of living on the estate.
As a mark of respect, we will be holding a short secular memorial service on Thursday, 3rd January 2019 at 11am on the Pear Pond, where the lovable ‘Swanny’ was usually to be found (that is if he hadn’t escaped to the neighbouring farm). We will be gathering memories and photos of the swan for the occasion, and Hestercombe Archives Assistant Ben Whitworth will be reading these on the day.
The service is free to attend (normal garden admission applies) so please do join us.
If you would like to contribute poems, your memories or pictures, please email us with them.
