August Upminster Death Cafe at the Sweet Rose Cakery
The summer Death Cafe had a slightly less busier turnout than others due to regular attendees being on holiday or unwell. However we still had a great turnout of 9 people, and I was very pleased with the conversation that flowed naturally. Whereas previous events have been very cheery and funny in places, this event was more serious but still light hearted. We largely discussed supporting people through their own death, or bereavement and also long term illnesses alongside euthanasia. This came from the experiences of the group in knowing people who had been through such things. I was pleased that we had mostly newcomers with some returning attendees from previous events. The plan still continues to conduct one a month at the Cakery.
