Opening Plaques

Opening plaques are a dignified and appropriate means of commemorating the opening of a new building or infrastructure project. Such a plaque can record the date of the opening along with other details such as who was bestowed with the honour of declaring the amenity open or even a tree planting.

We are very pleased with our memorial stone that Jeremy and his team produced. We have two WW1 Memorials in our church garden and we have now added areas for interred ashes. There was a lot of work involved and we were given money to help with this process. In recognition of the work done we wanted a sign to show that the garden area was a special place and when it was completed.

Thank you so much for the beautiful stone for ‘Daisy’s Garden’ which you made for us in memory of our beautiful Granddaughter. It is placed in a special part of our garden dedicated to her and, as her Mum and Dad live in America, this is our only way to pay tribute to her.
