Lights of Love

Join us for a celebratory service of life and of love

Leave an online message of love for family and friends with Willow Wood this Christmas and New Year.

Whether those special people are working away, living abroad or no longer with us, it feels more important than ever to mark special occasions, and our Lights of Love is one way to show how much you care.

By making an online dedication in our Virtual Book, you are able to leave a message which loved ones can access from anywhere and at any time, as the Book is always available via our website.
In addition, their names will be entered into the published Lights of Love Book displayed here at Willow Wood over the festive period.
We’d also like to invite you to join with us at a celebratory carol service, where you can start the season of goodwill with children’s choirs, brass bands and the switching on of the Lights of Love. For Glossop, the service is at 6.30pm on Tuesday 7 December at Glossop Parish Church and for Tameside at 2.30pm, Sunday 12 December at the Albion Church in Ashton-under-Lyne. There’s no need to book and no charge – just come along and enjoy.
We also have a limited number of beautiful metal Celebration Stars – standing 50cm high they can be placed in our own gardens for the festive season or taken straight home. Full details and how to order are available online at or in the enclosed leaflet.
