Memorial Benches

If you would like to celebrate an event or remember a loved one you may be interested in siting a plaque on one of our park benches. By using existing benches, rather than installing new ones, we are able to use the donations to refurbish of our park benches and to install more benches in parks and greenspace where there are most needed.

Your dedication will remain on site for 15 years with a cast bronze plaque of your own wording to mark the memorial. A variety of benches and sites are available within the scheme at a number of park locations including:

  • Bedford Park
  • The Embankment
  • Russell Park
  • Mill Meadows
  • Priory Country
