The Friends of Walkden Gardens receive many requests for Memorials such as trees and benches following the death of a loved one. Whilst we greatly appreciate the sentiments behind these requests it is with the deepest respect, that we have to say that we can no longer at this time consider trees, benches or other memorials in Walkden Gardens. The small size and the layout of the gardens mean we have reached capacity for such memorials. We do however have a memorial fund, which makes our work in the gardens possible and we do invite you to consider making a donation to this should you wish to mark the loss of a loved one. Any memorial donations will be marked by a Commemorative Certificate . Thank you for your understanding.

A wide programme of events in the Gardens during Summer 2018.
Everyone is invited to our 2018 AGM in the Upstairs Room at The Moorside Hotel, 131 Marsland Road, Sale at 7.30pm on Wednesday 27 June.
In addition to hearing reports and electing the Committee, there will be an interesting talk by Steve Wright, a member of the Japanese Garden and Society and a familiar person to most of you. It promises to be a good evening, though, so make a note of it come and have a glass of wine (or soft drink) with us.
Many thanks to Sue, Steve, Martin and Rob for giving up their Saturday morning on 19 May 2018 to plant some very large mature azaleas and fatsias in the Gardens.
