THE public is invited to remember and honour their loved ones this Mother's Day.

Borders Crematorium, near Melrose, has invited people to come together at their chapel on Sunday, March 9 to reflect and remember loved ones they have lost.

Visitors will also be able to write personal messages on memorial cards to be posted in the crematorium's Letters to Loved Ones post box or taken home.

The crematorium is part of the Westerleigh Group.

Donnie Connor, Westerleigh’s dvisional operations manager who covers Borders Crematorium, said: “We know that occasions like Mother’s Day are when people can particularly feel the loss of a loved one, which is why we always like to offer something to enable people to pay tribute in a special way.

“Something else that visitors to our site can do is post a Mother’s Day card in our Letters To Loved Ones memorial post box, which we know has given people a sense of comfort and a feeling of connection to someone they have lost.

“Regardless of whether they’re newly bereaved or lost their loved one a while ago, or where their funeral took place, our Mother’s Day invitation is open to anyone who is looking for a quiet place of reflection and comfort at this special time of year.”

The crematorium is also offering free memorial personalisation for those purchasing memorials around the Mother's Day period.

The personalisation can make memorials more unique and personal and are free up to the value of £500 (conditions apply).

The offer runs between February 26 and March 31.
