    Story

    My wife loved gardening. She had a plan to create a garden by our local church. Sadly, she died from brain cancer before doing that. Her family and many friends want to create this garden in her memory, open to all the community, as a place for peaceful reflection and prayer.
    Because the garden will be on church property, her designs have to be transferred to professional drawings with specifications for materials and construction. This is expensive, around £1000. And so I am trying to raise some money to help pay for this

      This is part of the final design that has been submitted to Lichfield diocese for approval. The Landscape architect attended meetings with us, listened to our ideas, inputted ideas of his own. He went away and produced three designs and we selected the one we like best of all. The architect produced detailed drawings specifying the materials and construction. His fee was paid with the money you gave to my Just Giving appeal. Thank you everyone. I will try and keep you posted Stuart

      I am very grateful to all of you that have supported me in this. Last night I was given the green light by the PCC to engage the services of a landscape architect. The creation of this garden means so much to not only me and my family but also Judith's many friends. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart. Stuart.
