Remembering David Peacock MBE and Sharon Peacock

Dave Peacock’s family arranged for the unveiling of a memorial plaque to honour Dave and his daughter Sharon, two forces of nature who worked so hard to establish & maintain this beautiful community garden.

Sadly we lost Dave suddenly in 2021 and Sharon, in 2020. They’re missed by the many volunteers who worked here with them over the years & our Garden friends.

Both Dave and Sharon were honoured with the unveiling of a special plaque in the Garden, in their memory.

Friends, volunteers and visitors of the Garden attended on Saturday 18th June 2022. The plaque was specially unveiled by Liz Twist MP.


We’d also like to thank Marian Foster, presenter of BBC Newcastle’s Garden Mania programme, for a lovely tribute to Dave and Sharon on her show. You can listen for a limited time right here. (Scroll to 3h 13 minutes)
