LIFE for a LIFE MEMORIAL FOREST

 

In 1999, Life for a Life Memorial Forest commenced opposite Chew Piece. The idea was for anybody wishing to plant a tree in memory of their loved ones who had deceased could do so with a set fees donation to the charity.  At the base of each tree, a small plaque was provided naming the person etc. Eventually, the trees would grow and turn into a small woodland, which has now happened.  Life for a Life provides this facility in numerous locations throughout the country. For further information go to the website: http://www.lifeforalife.org.uk/
In the early days of planting, people began to put personal memorabilia against their trees. This increased to such an extent that Life for a Life had to issue notices to prevent it, especially after numerous complaints from walkers who said it made the area look like a graveyard.
