Wave of Light 2017 at Bluewater Lake

The Wave Of Light is an annual event, and bereaved families around the world are asked to light a candle at 7pm and leave it burning for one hour. By doing this a wave of light passes around the world in memory of all the babies, gone too soon.

Each year, during Baby Loss Awareness Month, Kent Sands host a Wave Of Light walk at Bluewater Lake. This year it will take place on Sunday 15th October, meeting at 6:45pm.

There is a Facebook event page where you can find complete details. They encourage all to attend, though would like those intending to join the event to advise in advance.
