Dear Gardens’ families and visitors
Although the country is going back into lockdown this week, we are pleased to announce that the Gardens will remain open, as visits to burial grounds to pay respects are included within the Government’s definition of reasons to leave home.
The Gardens will be open from 8.30am to 4.30pm every day as normal – until further notice or change of rules from the Government.
Public toilets will remain closed and water for vases is available from open water butts around the garden as currently.
The office will also still be staffed between the hours of 9.30am and 4.30pm on weekdays. We do however ask that, to try to minimise face-to-face contact wherever possible, you please phone us on (01329) 828250 or email firstname.lastname@example.org, as we should be able to help with most queries that way. If absolutely necessary, we may be able to organise face-to-face appointments by pre-booking, following safety guidelines of distance, masks and hand sanitisation – however, for the safety of you and our staff, we would prefer to keep such contact to a minimum.
Please help us protect the wellbeing of all by following hygiene precautions and respecting social distancing guidelines with staff and other members of the public.
Thank you for your support and understanding.
The PMG Team
A PLACE OF PEACE AND TRANQUILLITY
There is nowhere more fitting to remember the loved ones you have lost, and celebrate their lives, than in the peaceful setting of a beautiful garden.
Portchester Memorial Gardens offers a private, tranquil haven in which to lay your loved one’s ashes to rest. Set among six acres of manicured lawns, mature shrubs and meandering streams, a variety of themed areas and a choice of personalised memorials enable you to build a fitting tribute that reflects the uniqueness of the person you have lost.
A special final resting place for your loved one’s ashes, our soothing garden setting is the perfect spot to remember special occasions and unforgettable memories, helping to slowly ease your heartache.
Follow paths from the tranquil Garden of Peace, through the colourful Little Springs children’s area. Pause to enjoy the scents on the Hill of Roses before entering the sunny haven of the Garden of the Sea.
Our green-fingered team works hard to keep our award-winning memorial gardens looking lovely all year round. Here is a small selection of photos throughout the seasons in recent years, we hope you like them.
“A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory.”
