Charlie’s Garden – a special memorial garden dedicated to families who have experienced the tragic loss of a young life – has been created with the local branch of SANDS (the Stillborn and Neonatal Death Society).
Entered through a rose arbour, families are guided on a spiral path through a colourful herbaceous border and into the memorial space. There are seats for reflection. Stepping stones allow you to choose your path through the garden. At the centre is a memorial tree to which families can add a leaf in memory of their much loved child.
