Blessing for ‘quiet’ garden

Scores of balloons were released with the names of lost loved ones on tags when schoolchildren welcomed the Bishop of Lincoln, the Rt Rev Christopher Lowson, to bless their remembrance garden.

Teacher Ruth Townsend, RE collective worship coordinator at William Stukeley Primary, in Holbeach, said it was a day of celebration as the school has a quiet space where they can remember people and pets they have lost.
