As an established, local, family business, serving the community is at the heart of everything we do.
Annual Memorial Service
On Saturday 26th January, we held our Annual Memorial Service, hosted this year by Bude Methodist Church. Over 80 family members participated, lighting candles to represent their loved ones. Deacon Debbie Marsh officiated at the service with the Rev. Libby Etherington giving the address. Prayers were led by the Rev. David Barnes representing the local Anglican community and Ms Suzanne Brown, a funeral celebrant, read a poem. The ‘roll of honour’ was read by members of the Arthur W. Bryant Funeral Service staff. Refreshments were provided following the service and people were invited to take home their candle and a commemorative bookmark as keepsakes.
Memorial Christmas Trees
Once again this year each of our offices has a Memorial Christmas Tree. Everyone is welcome to add a message in memory of a loved one. Please call in and collect a memorial star from your local office. Stars have also been posted to the families that we have supported in the last year.
Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal
We are proud to be supporting the Royal British Legion once again this year. Knitted poppies are on sale in all of our offices. The window displays in Camelford and Holsworthy have taken on a Remembrance theme. The crosses in the window at Camelford commemorate all of the servicemen from the town who laid down their lives in the First and Second World Wars. Information about them is also displayed alongside the story of the Unknown Soldier.
Macmillan Cancer Support ~ World’s Biggest Coffee Morning
On Friday 5th October 2018 we hosted a coffee morning in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support at our Holsworthy Office. A fantastic £139.25 was raised for Macmillan. A big thank you to everyone who supported the event.
Bude and North Cornwall Golf Club Seniors Open Event
We were pleased to sponsor this event again this year. William, Arthur and Sally spent the morning at the club, meeting the participants and handing out much needed refreshments.
Camelford Show & Holsworthy and Stratton Agricultural Show
We attended both local shows again this year and were pleased to welcome lots of visitors to our stand.
Mothering Sunday Daffodils
We distributed 230 bunches of daffodils to our local residential and nursing homes as our gift to residents for Mothering Sunday.
Our Holsworthy office has become the first place in Holsworthy taking part in the ‘Refill Devon’ scheme, offering to refill bottles with tap water free of charge. Please pop in with your bottle and help reduce the amount of plastic ending up in our seas.
On Saturday 27th January 2018, families we had served throughout 2017 were invited to join us at St Michael and All Angel’s Church, Bude for our first memorial service. Over 80 family members attended, lighting candles in memory of their loved ones and listening to the ‘roll of honour’. We hope that this will become an annual event.
Devon Air Ambulance
On Wednesday 29th November 2017 we joined Bradworthy Young Farmers Club and the family of the late Mr Todd Riggs as they presented a cheque for £9642.87 to Devon Air Ambulance. This fantastic amount was collected in memory of Todd at his funeral and through a crowd funding campaign.
