Memorial Garden for Jessie Wright unveiled

September 27, 2011

The garden is a fine remembrance of Jessie

The Jessie Wright Memorial Garden was officially opened on Sunday afternoon, September 25th. The ribbon was cut by her friends and pink balloons were launched.

The garden was created by a group of young women from the Bemerton with the support of All Change Arts, Team Cally, BVMO and Islington Council. It is located next to Kinross House, just outside the home where Jessie lived on the estate. The young women say it is a lovely memorial for their friend so tragically murdered last year.

Suzanne Lee, Artistic Director for All Change said “This has been a hugely positive project, led by the young women themselves, to create a beautiful garden to remember Jessie, and to provide a positive contribution to their community. The garden includes plant pots and a trellis designed and made by the young women, working with All Change artists and supported by local volunteers and youth workers.”

In developing the garden, the girls chose colours and a style to reflect Jessie’s, and will be a lasting memorial to someone who died so young.
