Funeral at St Andrew's
St Andrew's is about a mile (uphill) walk from Rugby train station.
- Do be aware of train strikes the following day.
Access to the church is gently sloped, but wheelchair friendly, though seating is in pews.
Dunchurch Baptist Church
To help us understand likely numbers at the reception and to minimise food waste (something that Marga was wholeheartedly committed to) please RSVP using form to the right.
You will be welcome in any case, regardless of receipt of RSVP, or of any change in plans or numbers.
DBC has good disabled access, including Changing Places toilet facilities and a platform lift (details).
We are looking into a minibus shuttle service from St Andrew's to DBC. If you think that you may want transportation between the funeral at St. Andrew's and the reception at DBC please use the form to the left.
We also have some car parking space as well as some cycle parking.
Those who are walking-fit may wish to park in the large car park at Draycote Water, from which there is a pleasant walk alongside the reservoir up to the church, however it is approximately 2 miles (40 mins) walk with a steep hill at the end.
There is also some parking available in Dunchurch village centre (10 mins walk).
Flowers & Donations
Please do not bring or send flowers. If you wish to make a donation in Margaret’s memory, we would be grateful if you would consider one of the following charities that she regularly supported:
The Salvation Army - for their dedicated support of the most vulnerable and marginalised in society
Médecins Sans Frontières / Doctors Without Borders - for their willingness to provide aid in the most acute circumstances
UNHCR (United Nations High Commission for Refugees) - to support and welcome those fleeing from war and persecutiion.
We are collecting stories, memories, photos to create a book commemorating and celebrating Marga’s life. Please send any you have to us, or bring them to the reception.
