Permanent memorial dedicated to Alan Henning

Alan Henning

A memorial garden in honour of Alan Henning will be opened is set to be officially opened in his home town. A special ceremony will be held at Eccles Recreation on Tuesday 17 May at 6pm. Alan's wife Barbara will say a few words and there will be prayers.

The aid worker from Salford was killed in Syria in 2014 by ISIS.

The Alan Henning Memorial Garden design is based upon a clock face. The colour yellow was chosen to show the love, support to Alan Henning and his family that emerged in and around the communities of Eccles and Salford.

“It is a place where people can reflect and think about him and a fitting tribute to a true son of Salford”.

– City Mayor Paul Dennett
