Members of TKBTC were invited by Emma Abdelkhalek, Cartrefi Conwy Chester Avenue Community House Development Assistant to the opening ceremony of the Community Memorial Garden on 16 May 2018.  Cllrs Jean McKenna and Barry Griffiths represented TKBTC along with members of the community attending a ribbon cutting conducted by Owen Veldhuizen – Cartrefi Conwy Community Regeneration Manage.

The community council made a donation in accordance with the Town Council Grant process and this contributed to the funds raised to convert the overgrown bed into a stunning, tranquil spot within the residential area.

The garden delivered through the efforts of Cartrefi Conwy is a real-time example of community working together; the simple design is robust in structure and easily maintained in a reflective “less-is-more” design with all attending commenting on the elegance and impact of this work which is hidden from immediate view making it a private and public memorial.
