On Wednesday 17th September we hosted an evening of celebrations at our new Huntingdon office in Princes Street. Over 30 guests attended, and it was wonderful to see people from so many different walks of life mixing and enjoying each other’s company.
The Mayor of Huntingdon formally opened the premises by cutting a kingfisher-coloured ribbon, before food and drink were made available for everyone.
We deliberately steered clear of the usual ‘chapel dedication’ that funeral directors hold when they open premises, opting instead for a welcoming barbeque and open event, during which guests were free to walk around the building and socialise with each other. At times it was difficult to hear yourself think above the noise!
The overwhelming reaction to the event was the beauty of the old listed building, the colourful, welcoming interior, and the sense of warmth that exudes from everyone involved.
We feel hugely privileged to be serving the people of Huntingdon and the surrounding area from Princes Street, whilst maintaining the ever-increasing popularity of our service from Gate Lodge in St Neots.
