Memorial gardens to open at Royal British Legion
A peaceful remembrance garden for people to mourn their loved ones who have died is being opened.
Hundreds of people from all across Borehamwood will be invited to the Royal British Legion, in Shenley Road, Borehamwood, to pay their respects.
A small patch of land in the legion’s front garden will officially be opened on Sunday, November 4, and will stay open until around April time.
Carole Denbigh, a volunteer with the legion, decided to open the garden after seeing a similar one in Westminster Abbey.
The 62-year-old, who lives in Shenley Road, said: “It is going to be a peaceful place where people can come to remember people they have lost.
“It was inspired by Remembrance Sunday but this garden will not specifically be for people who have died in the war – it will be for anyone.”
The garden was also open last year and Mrs Denbigh said it was a “great success”.
People are invited to come to the gardens opening on Sunday, November 4, at 1pm.
