Mynydd Mawr Memorial Garden Officially Opens

Tuesday 19th April 2022

The new Mynydd Mawr Memorial Garden at Nevill Hall Hospital was officially opened on Saturday 16th April 2022.

The new and improved memorial garden offers a larger space for those paying tribute to babies and loved ones that have sadly passed away, while its old home will make way for our new Satellite Radiotherapy Centre. The opening ceremony was led by Interim Chief Executive, Glyn Jones, and included readings by Health Board Chaplains and music by Usk Brass Band.

As well as featuring all the existing sentimental pieces from the original site, the new garden also includes a memorial bench and tree in honour of one of our colleagues, Sian Kenvyn, who sadly passed away due to Covid-19.

In his tribute to her, Glyn said: “Our thoughts remain with her beloved family, and we hope that the garden brings them and her colleagues some comfort as they remember and honour her. This garden serves as a reminder that the loved ones who are sadly no longer with us are always in our thoughts and our hearts.”

Thank you to all those involved in the project’s development and to those who attended the ceremony today, as well as to Usk Brass Band and League of friends, who supported the event.
