On the 13th June 2017, a bench was placed in the garden at Dene Barton in memory of Richard Power who spent countless hours helping the Friends of Dene Barton in their various fundraising activities and in several other informal ways. Some photographs recording the dedication of the bench are set out below. We hope that many of you will gain pleasure from visiting the garden bench, using it and reflecting on Richard’s enormous contribution.

On 25th August 2016 the Friends Garden was officially opened by theĀ Mayor of Taunton Deane, Vivienne Stock-Williams. Below are some images from the event.
