Garden House Hospice Care is hosting a drop-in session in Letchworth today to highlight Dying Matters Awareness Week, which runs from until Sunday.
The drop-in session aims to encourage local communities to talk positively and proactively about death.

“So in Dying Matters Awareness Week, we would like to open up the conversation and help dispel some of the distressing myths around death and dying.”
At the event people will have the opportunity to discuss and ask questions about all things related to death, post thoutghts and ideas on the hospice’s ‘Before I die I want to’ board and gain further information on the services, upcoming events and workshops provided by the hospice.
The event will be held today from 6pm to 8pm at The Icknield Centre in Letchworth.
