2017: Memorial Garden Party

Memorial Garden Party

at Moseley School 15th July 2017

In 2015 Moseley School set aside part of the school campus as a memorial garden where school staff, association members and close friends of Moseley School can be commemorated.

Following the Garden of Remembrance dedication in 2015, each July we will be holding the an annual Remembrance Garden Party to celebrate the lives of former Moseleians, both staff and pupils who are no longer with us.  All Moseleians and their families are invited together with a number of specially invited guests.

This event is intended to provide the opportunity for family, friends and colleagues/peers to get together and celebrate the life of their colleague or loved one alongside families, friends and colleagues/peers of other Moseleians who have recently passed away.

Last year was the first time we held this event, made possible as the Head, Roger McBrien, agreed that what had been known as the Head’s Garden could become the School’s Memorial Garden - something the Association had been suggesting for some time to better enable us to house the trees, benches and plaques that have been donated in the past.

The feedback was so positive last year we decided to make it a more regular event for the last Saturday before the end of the Summer Term.

It will be an informal occasion, but there will be an opportunity, should you wish it, for yourself or a friend to say a few words before we raise a glass in their memory.

Additionally, you may wish to provide or sponsor something as a memorial to your late family member in the garden. This could be as simple as a small name plaque to go on one of the benches, a plant – rose bush or similar -  a tree or plant container or even a bench.

The main thing at this point is for you to let us know if you would like to attend or not, and, if the answer is “Yes”, approximately how many people would be in your group. Myself or one of the Moseleian Association Committee members would then contact you to find out your wishes and to answer any queries you may have. It would be helpful if you could respond by July 10th using the contact form opposite.

Yours sincerely,

Richard Cobb
Chairman - Moseleians Association
