St Barnabas Hospice has partnered with Doddington Hall to display a collection of handcrafted dragonflies in the gardens this month.
Designed by Doddington Hall’s head gardener, Jordan Wallhead, over 1,000 dragonflies will be part of a display on the Croquet Lawn, through the walled gardens.
Each dragonfly has been dedicated by a St Barnabas supporter in memory of a loved one.
Supporters will be able to place these dragonflies in their own gardens once the display has finished.
Visitors can spend a quiet moment reflecting in the peaceful surroundings, follow an interactive lily pad story trail around the display, get support from members of the St Barnabas Wellbeing team and learn more about the significance of the dragonflies.
There will also be an opportunity for children to take part in craft sessions on certain days.
To date, more than £80,000 has been raised for St Barnabas Hospice from people dedicating a dragonfly in memory of a loved one.
Members of the public will be able to visit the display from Saturday 12th to Friday 25th September, 10am to 4pm.
Bookings must be made in advanced on the Doddington Hall website. Supporters who have dedicated a dragonfly in memory of a loved one can get in free with a guest but will still need to book a day to visit online.
