We'll have more updates on the progress of our Memorial Pathway & Garden soon...
A VETERINARY practice in Bromsgrove has begun work on a new 'memorial pathway' and garden to give bereaved owners a place to remember their pets.
Clent Hills Vets staff are in the process of building a small garden area at the Kidderminster Road site, featuring a pathway lined with bricks, where grieving customers can have their animal's name engraved.
The new memorial site, which is set to be completed by the end of this month, is positioned next to the practice's existing bereavement room.
Marketing manager Amy Holloway said: "We know how devastating losing a pet can be so we wanted to create a space where pet owners, and our team, can come and sit peacefully and remember their pets.
"We announced the project on our Facebook page last week and it has been tremendously well received with many positive comments.”
Several of the vets' Facebook followers made reference to pets 'crossing the rainbow bridge', leading project managers to approach local schools about a potential project.
Pupils will be asked to create a rainbow sculpture to be featured in the garden as an extra-curricular design project.
Further details about the memorial garden are set to be announced in upcoming weeks. For more information contact Clent Hills Vets on 01527 889810.
