Memorial garden for bereaved parents opening in Rochester

A memorial garden for parents who've lost a baby is almost ready for its official opening.

It's cost over twenty-five thousand pounds, which has been raised through fundraising by the charity Making Miracles, and has been built by volunteers.

It means bereaved parents will have a special place to grieve.

The founder of the charity Making Miracles, Kelly Wells, set up the charity after her baby daughter survived a serious heart condition.

There will be a memorial service to remember babies at Rochester Cathedral at 1500 on Sunday 7th August, followed by the garden's official opening at 1630 on Borstal Road, Rochester.

You can watch a full report by Abigail Bracken below. Interviewees are mother Becki Woodhouse; Kelly Wells; and the Dean of Rochester, The Very Rev Philip Hesketh.
