Parkgate and Neston United Reformed Church
The Memorial Garden was designed by a member of our congregation, a keen gardener and was constructed by members of the congregation under her supervision. This as a quiet area for people to come and remember their loved ones.
A lot of symbolism was used in the choice of plants.
The Cross is of Rosemary for remembrance, The golden Choysia at the head of
the Cross represents the Light of Christ in the world and the grasses take
that light upwards.
There is Heavenly Bamboo at the foot of the Cross and Grandmothers Bonnets
to spread their seed as we were told to go forth and multiply.
Last, but not least, are the Fuchsias from the Falkland Islands to remind us
that however far away we are physically, we are never far from our Father's love.
During the month of December, we remember especially those named in the memorial book:
Thomas Barrie Whattam; Leslie Bernard Crebbin; Margaret and Noel Jordan; R. Clifford Chambers; Verdun Spencer Racey; Hilda Violet Cave, Ron and Noreen Scholefield.
The memorial book is displayed at the back of the church
