'The Dell' Forget-You-Not Garden - Walton Hall

'THE DELL' - FORGET YOU NOT GARDEN, WALTON HALL, WARRINGTON
A new garden in a tranquil setting to remember loved ones.
The design is based on our ‘Dear Mum’ concept to help provide comfort and a way to process feelings.
‘The Dell’ features a post box sculpture placed between two granite benches to provide a quiet place for contemplation. The idea is that a visitor can collect an envelope containing biodegradable wildflower seed paper from the administration office and write their thoughts or message on the rear of the envelope and post it in the box.
The post box will be emptied regularly and the seeds scattered to help grow wildflowers in the garden.
Cllr Tony Higgins, cabinet member for leisure and community, said:
“For generations, Walton has been dear to the hearts of many people. It is a place where special memories are made and treasured.
“The last 18 months have been difficult for us all, especially for those who lost loved ones and were sometimes not able to say goodbye. I’m pleased that there is now a tranquil setting where they are able to visit to reflect on special memories.
“I hope the garden becomes a much-loved area of the estate and, over time, I look forward to seeing the whole garden flourish with wildflowers, bringing a beautiful backdrop of colour and providing a natural environment for nature to thrive.”
