Students Support Garden Memorial

Staff and students from Coleg Cambria Bersham Road make contribution to local Memorial Garden.

The Memorial Garden at Bellevue Park in Wrexham was officially opened to commemorate those from the local area who made the ultimate sacrifice during the First World War.

Staff and students from the college contributed to the Memorial Garden, Construction and Joinery learners lead by Tutor Matthew Owen made a wooden Welsh Dragon, whilst large metal poppies were constructed by the Fabrication and Welding department lead by Lecturer John Freeman.  These are now on display along with a memorial stone designed by local stonemasons, Mossfords Memorial.

Friends Of Bellevue Park have been fundraising during the last few months with some community councils,the  local Residents Association and local people also donating to enable this memorial to be built.

Coleg Cambria’s Deputy Director Nick Povey who attended the official opening along with Sue Price, Principal and other staff and students said:

“It was an absolute pleasure to be able to contribute towards the Memorial Garden at Bellevue Park and an honour to be at the official opening service led by Father Sam Erlandson of All Saint Church.  Students worked really hard to produce the Welsh dragon and poppies which look fantastic in the memorial garden.”
