More than 600 people came together in the gardens of the Garden House Hospice on Sunday afternoon to share in a time of remembrance for their loved ones this Christmas time.

The annual Lights of Life event gives family and friends the chance to dedicate a light on the Christmas tree in the grounds of the hospice in Gillison Close, Letchworth.

The tree, donated by North Herts District Council, was lit up with hundreds of small white lights, during a carol service accompanied by Letchworth Town Band and Letchworth City Chorus.

Hospice general manager Jenny Lupton said: ‘We have been very grateful to the Comet for bringing this very special event to the readers’ attention over the past weeks.
