Quedgeley Memorial Garden
As a result of a planning agreement many years ago, the Parish Council owns a small piece of land on the corner of St James and School Lane. Because of its size the use to which it could be put was very limited and it remained disused until 2007.
Further improvements were carried out in 2010 and 2013 that included a walkway and two stone walls, to which memorial plaques can be attached. Quedgeley Area Conservation Association kindly offered to provide a bench in memory of two former members of the association, Jeff Morgan and Mike Orr, both of whom did much to protect the environment in Quedgeley. The offer was gratefully accepted by the Parish Council and the garden was officially opened by Cllr Smith on the 18th September 2010.
The Chair of the Parish Council at that time, Cllr Anna Mozol, said "The parish has a significant number of elderly residents and more and more are living longer so the number will continue to increase. The Memorial Garden provides a place of tranquillity where people can sit and remember their loved ones".
We would also like to thank Cllr Graham Smith for all the hard work he put into the memorial garden.
If you are a resident of, or lived in Quedgeley, and would like to have a plaque (costing £100) on one of the memorial walls then please contact Bev, Debbie or Sharon.
