The Downs Church is fortunate to be located on a typically leafy green plot reclaimed from a limestone quarry. From time to time its landscaping requires upgrading, and Fay Stewart has recently put in some considerable time and effort planting and maintaining borders with water-wise shrubs.
Memorial Water Feature
Today Fay, together with John Beard and his son-in-law, Nick, completed this phase by installing a replacement water feature. Due to the generosity of Elaine Benford, this feature will enhance the contemplative environment of the courtyard that links the street to the church buildings.
Elaine makes this donation in tribute to her late husband Ron, an enthusiastic lover of people in general and the church in particular.
