Work Begins on St Michael’s Cemetery Memorial Garden

We are very grateful to local Sculptor, Max Nowell, who is hard at work preparing the edges for the sandstone border.

The border will hold the plaques which are being relocated from the old granite cairn and will give us more space for additional plaques if required.

Back at his base, Max has also been working hard, chiselling away on the beautiful sandstone centrepiece. The piece evokes the image of a family group each pierced to symbolise the loss felt by the death of their baby.

We are delighted to have Max on board and it’s great to see the work starting at last.
