Bench Dedication At Old Sarum

Memorial Bench
On Thursday July 27th, Keith Thomasson, our Senior Chaplin held a bench dedication ceremony at our Old Sarum Development Centre. Staff, clients and family members gathered to remember two service users who had died at the beginning of the year, Matthew and Hugh.
The woodwork group, run at the centre were keen to make something in memory of their friends and decided a bench would be fitting, a place to rest and reflect. The seat of the bench, made of ash was recently milled at the centre by Richard at Cedarwood Tree Services. Richard very kindly volunteered his time to show our clients how wood is processed.
Markus Fanti, Team Leader at Old Sarum said;
"Loosing both Matthew and Hugh has had a real impact on everyone here. They were both popular members of the Old Sarum community and are very much missed. Coming together for the bench dedication has been wonderful, we now have a place to sit and remember two great characters, Matthew and Hugh."
