Memorial Benches and Plaques
We welcome donations of memorial benches for use in Park Gardens, Bank Gardens and the Old Cemetery, subject to the following conditions:
- Memorial seats will be of a design consistent with those already in each location, i.e. olive green metal in the cemetery, traditional cast iron and timber in Bank and Park Gardens.
- Although the Council recognises that it will be receiving a significant benefit, no contribution will be made to the provision of memorial seating, however, we will undertake the installation and maintenance.
- While every effort will be made to accommodate the wishes of the family in choosing the site of the seat, the final decision will rest with the Council.
- As the seats are installed in public areas, the Council accepts no liability for damage to or loss of the seat.
