Peter Johnson Memorial BenchPeter Johnson Memorial Bench

A new park bench has been sited under the cherry trees by the children’s play area on the Orpen Field. It is to the memory of Peter Johnson, Parish Councillor, who worked tirelessly for the village and its environment.

The bench was made for us from ethically sourced, quality timber at the Miletree Workshop ( in Cowdray Avenue, an organisation providing opportunities and an environment for local people experiencing mental health difficulties. Their aim is to assist people to develop skills, build confidence and to enhance their employment prospects.

Miletree Workshop takes responsibility to care for the environment in everything they do and they have built us a fine piece of park furniture, a fitting memorial to Peter.
