Cuddly Toy Needed…….

The planning next weeks Proms in the Park is coming along nicely and even the weather at this early stage looks good.

Memorial Benches in the Park

We have had over the years many requests for memorial benches in the park. For some though the cost has been prohibitive and arranging installation by the council has been problematic.

CIMG6302 We have recently installed two wooden memorial benches ourselves and the result has been several requests for more benches. This has been nice because it shows the new benches look good and are located in nice areas of the park.

We are therefore delighted to be able to offer the purchase and installation of memorial benches of the same type – including an engraved plaque. The cost will be £450 for a 5 foot bench and £400 for a 4 foot bench.

You can choose the location in the park but of course we would offerCIMG6303 advice as to the most suitable place.

Please contact us via our contacts page for further information and a site visit in the park to discuss the options available.
