I would like to pass on my sincere praise for the wonderful way your Crematorium is looked after. Every time I have visited it to leave flowers for my little grandson I am overwhelmed at how beautiful Harwood Park is, so much so that I never leave feeling sad, only uplifted by the love and care that is felt at Harwood Park. A big thank you to all the wonderful gardeners who keep the gardens looking so beautifully neat and tidy. They are always so busy when ever I visit. Also a very big thank you for enabling my family to decorate my grandsons garden as we wish. It means so much to us and has helped us deal with our loss. Thank you from my heart. Mrs. T. (Royston)

Dear John, Jean & Claire,

It was lovely to see you at Jonquil on Tuesday, for the presentation of the magnificent cheque which will be used for the Sensory Room project.

I was absolutely overwhelmed to receive the donation, along with the interim donation you so kindly gave us last November. You have helped so much to realise a dream project I had two years ago – to refurbish the Sensory Room. Thank you so much for your interest and support.

We are in a position now to go ahead and order some expensive equipment,as the flooring has been ordered. It is really exciting to see the room developing. I am pleased that you have seen ‘the before’ to be followed by ‘the after’ in mid April; when we shall have our grand opening-to which you will get an invite.

All the equipment will be chosen to help the individual needs of the residents, to enhance their learning and social skills. Staff will be trained in all aspects of its use to achieve maximum benefit for the most able to the least able person. There is great anticipation at Jonquil and moreover, enthusiasm from all who work there.

A big thank you once more for choosing us as your ‘Charity of the Year’. We feel especially privileged as there are so many other worth charities requesting assistance. Thank you, too, for providing us with the fliers, which have been so useful during our fund-raising events.

With very best wishes

Larry Shaw (Fund-Raising Committee)

On behalf of my family, I would like to thank you and all the staff at Harwood Park for making my mother’s funeral such a special day. Everything went so smoothly and we felt very well looked after. All our guests remarked on what a lovely, tranquil place Harwood Park is – lovely buildings and gardens and a wonderful feeling of peace everywhere. It is a great credit to you all for making it so. Mrs. A. R. (Hertford)
