Garden for a Beatle?

THE Mayor of Henley has proposed a memorial garden in the town for George Harrison

THE Mayor of Henley has proposed a memorial garden in the town for George Harrison.

Councillor Lorraine Hillier made the suggestion during a meeting of the recreation and amenities committee on Tuesday last week. ?I would like to see a garden for George Harrison rather than a statue,? she said. ?This is something I would like to see realised.?

Harrison moved to Friar Park, Henley in the Seventies and a memorial was first mooted in 2001 following his death but the idea of a statue did not appeal to his widow, Olivia.

In January 2013, Mrs Harrison wrote to the Henley Standard saying: ?A more appropriate way of honouring his memory in Henley would be to support a community project.?
