Memorial garden

In May 2005 a memorial garden was officially opened at Leicestershire Police's headquarters in Enderby.

Following the deaths of PC Andy Munn and PC Bryan Moore in August 2002, ideas were put forward to create somewhere where all those who had once served for the Force can be remembered.

Deputy Chief Constable David Lindley said: "Until recently we were lacking any form of a permanent memorial for officers and staff, and I felt an area for dedication, quiet reflection and enjoyment would be fitting."

A large area of muddy grass in the centre of the premises was then transformed and has now become a beautiful garden for all officers, staff and visitors to force headquarters to enjoy.

Bird boxes have been placed in the garden by Robin Moore, the father of one of the officers killed in 2002, flowers have been donated and it is hoped there will soon be a place for name plaques to be displayed.

The garden is maintained and looked after by the 'Friends of the Garden' group who volunteer their services to keep the garden looking pristine throughout the year.

In December 2005, a Christmas carol service was hosted in the garden, which was well-attended by people celebrating the festive season and remembering loved ones.
