A MEMORIAL garden at the RSPCA in Sheffield is looking particularly lovely this autumn - and it’s free to visit.
Staff invite the public to enjoy the haven of peace at the RSPCA Sheffield Centre’s Community Memorial Garden in Stadium Way, Attercliffe.
They are appealing for volunteers to help maintain it.
General manager Stella White paid tribute to Star readers for their tremendous support: “Thank you very much for all your support of our charity. We receive no national funding from the RSPCA which sometimes comes as a surprise to people.
“Our centre costs £2,000 a day to run and we have to raise all the funds ourselves.
“The garden, officially opened by ITV weather presenter Kerrie Gosney, is looking particularly lovely in this latest bright spell of sunshine.
“The plants and flowers have really bloomed. It really is the perfect time to come and sit in such a peaceful place and to perhaps eat a spot of lunch, relax and remember a much-loved pet or person.
“We are seeking volunteers to help with willow weaving and maintaining this beautiful garden. We would love to hear from anyone who thinks they may have a bit of time to help us do that.
“We look forward to welcoming lots of visitors to this spectacular new green community space and to hearing from volunteers wishing to help us maintain it.”
The garden is open every day, 10am-4pm and it is free to visit.
