Meadow of Memories

Event Type: In Memorium

When: 5th July 2015

Meadow of Memories  

Our beautiful flower meadow is created within the hospice grounds in Rowcroft's arboretum amongst many varieties of trees that grow there.

The Meadow of Memories becomes a beautiful and tranquil place, created to give people the chance to remember, reflect and look forward whilst enjoying the view of the meadow and its flowers.

We invite you to dedicate a flower from the choices below:

  • Cornflower
  • Sweet Alyssum
  • Marigold
  • Virginia Stock
  • Californian Poppy
  • Linum (Flax)
  • African Daisy
  • Night Scented Stock
  • Gypsophila 'Covent Garden'

You are warmly invited to visit the meadow at any time. You may also like to come to our new Meadow of Memories Family Picnic Day on Sunday 28 June, when you can settle on the lawn with your family, enjoy the sunshine and relax for a couple of hours in beautifully peaceful surroundings.

The informal Meadow of Memories services will also take place in July, by which time many of the flowers will be in full bloom. Everyone who dedicates a flower will receive an invite to the services and Family Picnic Day.

Each year we receive some wonderful comments about the meadow and here are some received in 2014:

“Thank you for the Meadow of Memories service today. It was really moving and very comforting” 

“Thank you Rowcroft such a lovely service and a beautiful garden” 

And this one by email:

"The meadow was beautiful and I am sure that it has given much comfort to very many families as it did to ours, we found the service very uplifting and it really pulled our family closer together".

Photos from last year's meadow planting are available to view in our website gallery.
