Gardens

Manchester

RoadPeace member, June Webb, has created a beautiful memorial garden in Beswick, Manchester. It has been created in memory of all who lose their lives on the road and especially June's daughter, Jodie Webb, and Jodie's best friend Joanne Greenwood, who were killed on 6 August 2000, Jodie's 21st birthday.  Every year, on or close to that day, there is a public service of remembrance at the garden.

The garden is at the Grange Community Resource Centre and is open to the public. June has built strong links with the Trafford Youth Offending team and has involved many young offenders in creation and maintenance of this memorial garden, including many who have been convicted of driving offences.

The garden is located at the Grange Community Resource Centre, Pilgrim Drive, Beswick, Manchester M11 3TQ.

More information about this and other public remembrance events is available from RoadPeace. 

The Livia Memorial Garden
Enfield, North London

George and Giulietta Galli-Atkinson have created a memorial garden in memory of their daughter, Livia, who was killed aged 16 on her way to ballet class in Enfield.

Alongside the site of the crash was a derelict builder’s yard that agitated Livia’s mother when she visited the site.  On 30 October 1999, Livia’s 18th birthday, the memorial garden was opened by MP Stephen Twigg. 

The garden has been recognised locally and nationally for its beauty and community engagement but its focus will always be the memory of Livia and others who lose their life on the roads. It is open to the public and some people have planted plants in memory of their own loved one.

The garden is open Monday to Friday 09.00 - 17.00 (closed when it rains and in the winter months) and is located at  Windmill Hill, Enfield, EN2 (near Enfield Chase railway station).
