Dear Gardens’ families and visitors,
Opening Hours Update
We are pleased to announce that our office will now be staffed between the hours of 9.30am and 4.30pm on all weekdays.
However, to try to minimise face-to-face contact, wherever possible we will try to help you over the phone (01329) 828250 or via email (firstname.lastname@example.org). The office will be closed to visitors without pre-booked appointments so that we can continue to ensure there is no overlap between families and that cleaning can take place between appointments.
If you do visit for such an appointment, please only bring a maximum of two visitors and make use of our hand sanitisation station. You may choose to wear a face mask if you wish, but we will endeavour to maintain 2m distancing wherever possible.
Garden opening times are now standardised as 8.30am to 6.30pm, every day, until our winter hours start.
We will continue to keep the public toilets closed and not place shared watering cans out for the time being – in both cases because we cannot guarantee being able to clean them between uses. We do have open water butts provided around the gardens at which you can fill your vases.
Please help us protect the safety and wellbeing of all by respecting social distancing guidelines with staff and other members of the public and following hygiene precautions.
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.”
