A Celebration of Life with Come Together - Norton, Worcestershire 2021

This year, Norton ‘Picnic on the Pitch’ is going to be a little different and hopefully a little special.

‘A Celebration of Life with Come Together’ is exactly that; We want to celebrate the fact that many of us are still here after such a difficult 12 months.

But not all of us are here.

I doubt that any of us have come through this year and remained untouched by the loss of loved ones, friends, and family that we have simply not been able to say goodbye to in the way we would have chosen.

So I had the idea of putting on this event, the concept being one of celebration but also remembrance.

Of course, as with every past Norton event, Come Together will be playing live, together with support from some fabulous local musicians (details to follow). The vision is that we will have short tributes and song dedications throughout the afternoon interspersed with live music, a disco and fundraising activities. Any monies raised on the day will be donated in support of St. Richards Hospice who need little introduction for the fabulous work they do and have continued to do through this time of uncertainly.

Early evening we anticipate a Candle / Lantern walk of the ground for all that would like to do so.

Again, as with every year, it will be free entry with the option to bring your own chairs, shelter and a picnic!

The clubhouse bar will be open serving drink and snacks and there will be BBQ on site for those who prefer a burger or hotdog!

This event is for all of us and it will only be as good as what we all put into it – CT can’t do it alone.

So Come Together would love for you to start thinking about those tributes you want read out, those songs you want to hear …and of course any other ideas for the day which could make it really special.

Everyone without exception is giving their time for free to put on this event, so your support to make it the day we all would like to remember would be greatly appreciated.
