Local residents can remember someone special and help raise funds for a local hospice through a new planting project.

The Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice Memory Meadow on Egerton Road is a striking mix of brightly coloured annuals, including poppies, cornflowers, marigolds and cosmos. The scheme, supported by the Guildford Borough Council’s parks and leisure team, offers local people the chance to donate towards this living tribute.

Cllr Matt Furniss, Lead Councillor for Environment, says: “We are pleased to be able to develop the Memory Meadow project and help raise funds for Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice. The planting provides a bright and colourful tribute and helps to promote the support the hospice provides to local residents.”
