Finally, a new Memorial Garden takes shape!
Two years of deliberating. Endless meetings and discussions, the faculty having been granted. Work this week, finally starts on the on the new memorial garden for the burial of Ashes at St. Marys.
It has been quite a journey but I hope what we get will be worth the wait. We hope the Garden will be dedicated when the Bishop of Chelmsford comes to our Patronal Festival at the end of July.
But for those who have not been involved in the discussions I thought it would useful for you to have a look at the plans even if they are in miniature and the central memorial will be a granite obelisk! The design has been refined but it should be something like this situated on the Left Hand side of the path as you enter the Graveyard. Quintin
