Commemorative seats and memorial trees are a popular way of remembering loved ones, with a gift to the town or village which can be appreciated by others.
We do not have a list of trees to be considered for planting as each application is considered individually. Trees are planted between November and February.
- The location you wish the bench to be erected must be in an area owned or managed by us.
- To enquire about the purchase of a bench or the planting of a tree please complete our online enquiry form.
Unfortunately there are no spaces available for memorial benches at Coldingham Beach or on the coastal path between St Abbs and Coldingham Bay.
- The type of seat that you choose should be in keeping with, and will be determined by, the desired area and location.
- The type of plaque will be dependent on the bench you have requested.
- See our Flickr for examples of benches available.
