Margaret Leibbrandt lived in Primrose Hill for over 30 years. She loved the area and especially the view of Primrose Hill from her window. For those who knew her, she had a great love of writing. She often said she felt like she was actually talking to the person she was writing to! We wonder how many of these conversations she had over the years! She will also be fondly remembered for the many quaint sketches she drew of people and animals.
We would love to dedicate a bench in Chalcot Square, Primrose Hill in her memory. She loved this part of Primrose Hill, and would have loved others to take time to read a book, write a card or just enjoy watching the world go by.
£1500 is the amount set by Camden council for a commemorative bench. The benches are traditionally styled heavy duty park benches and will include a stainless steel plaque which we will dedicate to Margaret. Further information to follow.

On behalf of Margaret's family, thank you for the kind donations towards a bench in Margaret's memory. We are getting close to our target, and will update in due course once we have further information. We know she would have been touched to know so many people remembered her. With thanks and best wishes, from Catherine, Louisa and family.

I knew Margaret c.25 years ago when she did my filing. After she moved to Oldfields I saw her around the shops in Regent's Park Road and we always said hullo. A bench would be a lovely memorial.

I was intrigued and puzzled by her rapid marathons around Primrose HIll over the years but there was something dignified and beautiful about her. A bench is a worthy dedication.

Thanks for doing this. I didn’t realise Margaret had died and miss her walking to and fro. A loss to Primrose Hill.
