The difference a tree makes at Longsands Academy Memorial Garden

The students, staff and visitors at Longsands Academy in Cambridgeshire are in agreement – this paved area has been transformed by adding an allgrowth tree or two.  The birch trees were planted as a lasting reminder of two staff who have recently passed and will serve as a great memorial to sadly-missed colleagues and mentors.

An important gesture in the School’s healing process, we received a personal message of thanks for our part in creating the memorial garden:

“The trees arrived safely and almost to the minute.  They have made a very significant impact within the memorial garden.  The numerous comments are best summed up by the reaction of one young pupil “They look like they’ve been there forever”.  We are all sincerely grateful for your generosity and kind spirit.  You did us proud.”
