PEOPLE in Taunton are being challenged to make an unusual New Year's Resolution - to talk more about death.

The first Death Cafe Taunton meeting of 2019 is at the Creative Innovation Centre on Saturday, January 12, from 2pm to 4pm.

Guests will have the opportunity to discuss all aspects of death in a relaxed and respectful setting.

Adults of any age and experience are invited to attend, to enjoy refreshments and talk about death,dying and beyond.

Representatives of Wallace Stuart Funeral Directors, of Bridgwater, will be there to offer advice and answer questions.

Nicole Stanfield Caile, organiser of Death Cafe Taunton, said: "New Year is the perfect time to make the resolution to talk about death. What better way to start 2019 than to see what Death Cafe is all about?

"My hope is that people will become comfortable talking about death with strangers, and then go and talk to their families and loved ones about it. The more people in Taunton who make their wishes known and plan for the end, the better."
