Baby Loss Awareness Week

 This week takes place from October 9th to 15th. It is a special opportunity to mark the lives of babies lost in pregnancy, at or soon after birth. There will be a small display up in Little Gaddesden Church showing items that members of the village have made for the local maternity units where mothers have suffered such a loss.  If you can help in any way with knitting, printing or the tiny cribs, please contact Sarah Gall on 01442 842422.  Please join others across the world by lighting a candle at 7pm on October 15th and leaving it burning for at least one hour to remember all babies that have died too soon.
