The Remembrance Garden
Updated: Nov 3
A special Garden of Remembrance has been set up by Test Valley Borough Council in the Chantry Centre this week.
Over the next couple of days, members of the public will be able to pay their respects and commemorate those who served in battle and those who continue to serve.
By visiting the garden, people can choose to lay a poppy or simply pause for a moment of reflection.

The Remembrance Garden, located next to Boswell's seating area, will be open until Thursday 5 November when the national lockdown begins. We hope that people will be able to visit at some point in the next few days at a time convenient for them.
In addition to the garden, a local collector is displaying artifacts from WW1 and WW2 in a shop window opposite Boots. Shoppers are welcome to view the artifacts on display when they visit the centre.
