About this Death Cafe

Our Eighteenth consecutive monthly Death Cafe is on Saturday 1st April [No Fooling!]

Our March DC had seven people attending including one newcomer, much younger than the rest of us. She made really valuable contribution to our conversations.

Within abiout five minutes of starting everyone (including the most diffident) was busy contributing to the proceedings. This has always been our experience

The week before, I visited the newly-formed DC in Croydon which partly owed its existence to its founder having come to Lewisham DC

I was given a great welcome, and I took away from it several new ideas.

For example, at the Lewisham DC the subjects of the death of pets had never arisen, and there was some very useful input about how to help women who had experienced a  miscarriage, stillbirth, or other perinatal death of their children. 

I have always found that visiting other DCs a really worthwhle experience and Croydon was no exception!
