Bereaved parents remembered lost loved ones on Saturday, as they gathered at Herschel Park in Slough for the sixth Little Angels Remembrance service.

The event was organised as usual by the Vishaal Foundation, founded by Slough councillor Madhuri Bedi to help parents honour and remember their lost children.

Cllr Bedi said that about 100 people came to this year's service.

She said: "We supply the food and the place for people to come. Everybody there had walked the same path - your child is your child whether he or she was only a baby or 26-years-old when they died.

"I lost my son on the first day of his life and I realised there was nowhere to go to talk about it."

She founded the Foundation to offer support to families suffering the grief of a lost child.

She said: "Being able to talk to others in the same situation is so important to parents like me. Now we are like a family."

In the past people at the remembrance services have released balloons. But this year instead, a sea of windmills were placed in front of a screen in memory of the lost children and Cllr Bedi said: "It looked just beautiful."

The mayor of Slough Cllr Paul Sohal attended the event.

Also present was Mark Clements, 52, of Church Street, Slough - area development manager for E Sargeant and Son Funeral Directors in Church Street. Sargeant sponsors the Foundation which Mr Clements also chairs.

He lost his daughter Lisa, who was killed aged 16 in a car crash on Christmas Day, 2005.
