The Parish Council own and maintain QEII Playing Fields in Yate (formally Kelston Playing Fields). Due to the closure of Wapley Court Care Home in 2011 and subsequent demolition, the Parish Council has monies for a memorial garden to be planted at this open space. We’re delighted to say that work has begun on the Memorial Garden, starting with planting trees and installing a fence to act as a shield from the football pitches.
We plan to keep disruption to a minimum during these works, but do please be aware as you walk around the playing fields as there may be works vans entering the site. At the moment, our contractor won’t be back on-site until end of January. Weather depending, the Memorial Garden will be completed by the start of Spring 2019.
You can view the draft plan of the Memorial Garden below.
