Dusty's memorial at Henley

Postby JohnHarding » Fri Dec 22, 2017 6:46 pm

Hi everyone.
I arranged with Annette from The White Garden florist recently for the planter on Dusty's memorial to be refreshed, and for a Christmas wreath to be placed there too; given the bad weather at the time of ordering, Annette and I felt that a wreath would last much longer than flowers (it was snowing at the time!)

I also arranged for a gold star bearing the name Dusty Springfield to be attached to the Christmas tree at The Royal Marsden's Chelsea site, as has happened in recent years.

I'm also exploring the potential to sponsor more cats at The Celia Hammond Animal Trust - the two which the group have sponsored for the past year have now been taken off the sponsorship program. When there is more to report, I shall write again.

Meanwhile, I am going to attached photographs which Annette has sent to me of the new flowers and wreath in Henley.

None of these activities would be possible, of course, without the generosity of many members of this community, who make it possible to continue to honour Dusty's memory. To everyone here, I'd like to send my own best wishes for a happy and peaceful holiday season.

With all best wishes,

A good idea to put a Wreath on the Marker in the winter. It should last well and looks lovely.

Thanks for arranging this John and also of course to LTD for supporting the fund for flowers etc every year.

Once again I visited Dusty's Memorial in Henley between Christmas and New Year and thought that I just had to say how wonderful it looked.
Whilst I was there I spoke to a local lady who was passing and she remarked how impressed she was that Dusty's memory was been kept alive and that people took so much trouble to place flowers all year round.
Thank you John for arranging this and also to Let's Talk Dusty for supporting the flower fund. Your efforts don't go unnoticed.
