A Special Swing at Peter Beales Roses

Things end but memories last for ever

Back in 2016 we were contacted by a lovely family who wished to place a memorial seat for a much loved family member who had sadly passed away at a very young age.

They commissioned us to make a Tranquillity Oak Heart Back Swing Seat, carved with a special inscription and they asked for it to be placed at Peter Beales Roses, in Norfolk, a place that means a lot to them as a family, where it could be enjoyed by them and others.

It was a huge privilege for us to work on this commisison for them and it has been much enjoyed by visitors to Peter Beales since 2016.

Late last year the family contacted us to see if we could refurbish the swing seat for them, and we were very happy to carry that out for them, bringing it back into our Dorset Workshop where under Greg Shannon's careful attention it was give our full Refurbishment Service and the photos show how it looks now after this TLC.  The family were delighted and you can see what they said below, so we were also delighted to have helped.

"Dear Siobhan

 Thank you for your email and photographs. Wow, what a difference it has made to have the refurbishment. 

 Thank you for all the work taken to bring Rachel's swing bench back to its beauty. We look forward to seeing it back at Peter Beales Rose gardens. 

 Kind regards and many thanks to you and Martin for all your help and support, it means so much.

 Best wishes 

 Amanda and all the Lane family"
