Memory Jars

Keeping the memories of our loved ones shining bright

We all carry fond memories and moments of our loved ones which will stay with us wherever we go.

Whether it is a place, a photograph, a phrase or saying, or even a moment in time; It is something personal between us and our loved ones which we will treasure forever.

We invite you to light up your memories in our brand new Memory Jar installation which will be held across the county. Each Memory Jar will securely contain your memory, which is tailored and personal to you.

When night falls, each of our Memory Jars, and your memories, will be lit up and shine throughout the night at our three locations across Dorset. The installations will be in place for ten days at each outdoor venue in Lyme Regis, Sherborne and Weymouth. Throughout each installation, you are invited to visit the display and view your own Memory Jar, reflect and remember.

Due to the ongoing pandemic, we will not be holding a physical remembrance service however, a virtual service will be streamed via Facebook and YouTube for you to join, should you wish.

During the last 18 months we all have witnessed the devastating loss of over 100,000 lives across the UK. Whether you have recently experienced a bereavement or your loved one died some years ago, this installation is for you. Together we can ensure that the memories of our loved ones live on and shine brightly in the night sky this summer.


The installations of Memory Jars will be at the following locations:

1st – 11th July – Sherborne – Paddock Garden,  DT9 3DX

15th – 25th July – Lyme Regis – Langmoor and Lister Gardens, DT7 3JQ

29th July – 8th August – Weymouth – Greenhill Gardens, DT4 7SW

Remember a friend, loved one or colleagues this year, whether they have been cared for by Weldmar Hospicecare or not, and let your memories shine bright during one of our brand new installations this summer.
