You have the right to choose any funeral director you prefer.
A good funeral director will be happy to answer any questions and never pressure you into something you aren't comfortable with.

We hosted the British Driving Society Suffolk, Cambs and Huntingdon Area Young Drivers Day yesterday. The girls learnt about walking a cones course ( using a wheelbarrow with a bar the same width as the carriage to show the importance of getting your line correct). They learned about parts of the harness and refreshed their coaching hand and harnessing up skills. They then took part in an Easter themed Trec Skills competition ( this day has been postponed since Good Friday) and cones driving. The girls also achieved their Young Drivers Bronze awards for coaching hand, harness and cones driving. With 2 of them reaching the Silver award! Thank you for your help Lesley Luxford and Mark KiddImage attachmentImage attachment+Image attachment
