LETTER: What about a garden of remembrance?

LETTER: What about a garden of remembrance?

I’VE left writing this letter until after Remembrance Sunday because I thought it would be more appropriate.

More than one person has approached me about having a memorial garden here in Yorkshire.

Although we have a national one they have told me it’s too far away.

As Yorkshire has a population of 5.3 million, the same as Denmark, it would be nice for to have a garden of remembrance here.

We have a group of other counties on our border such as Northumberland, Cumbria, Lancashire, Lincolnshire, Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire.

I hope this letter is food for thought and like-minded people write to the Advertiser.

Also, anyone who has other ideas will hopefully get involved.

Richard Billups, Rawmarsh
