Improvement works

Contractors will be repointing and relaying the York Stone paving in and around the Garden of Remembrance Rose Beds each weekend until 17 December 2023.

There maybe times where access to a particular location may be restricted. If you wish to lay floral tributes to an area that has restrictions, please consider placing the tributes in the Flower Pavilion.
