PRAYERS are being held for lost loved ones at a special ceremony.

Edward’s Funeral Directors have donated the Christmas tree at St George’s Church, in Waterlooville town centre.

Names of loved ones can be written on stars and hung on the tree by members of the public.

These will be read out and prayed for at the annual memorial service on Monday, December 17 at 7pm.
