St Thomas’ Quiet Garden reopens with tribute to Margaret Linton
St Thomas’ Quiet Garden was re-opened by the Mayor of Slough on Saturday following a major programme of work funded by Grundons.
Today (Saturday) the Mayor of Slough, Councillor Balwinder Gains, re opened the newly replanted Quiet Garden in the grounds of St Thomas’ Church.
The event follows a restoration programme managed by Paul Up wood, project manager for Groundworks South and financed by the CCP and Grundons.
The event saw the Chair of the Parish Council attend the Mayor, and well wishers included members of the Parish Council, the Colnbrook Community Association and the Colnbrook Scouts, in addition to the congregation of St Thomas’ Church.
The large crowd braved a short sharp shower immediately following the ribbon cutting ceremony. This was followed by the dedication of an oak tree in memory of Margaret Linton, the long serving Treasurer and PCC Secretary of St Thomas’ who passes away last year following a long and brave fight against cancer.
Refreshments were served in the church following the singing of the song “Be Still”.
