Attendees included representatives from Castle Gardens, Chris Kampf Garden Sculptures, the Diocese of Salisbury, Dorset Gardens Trust, the NADFAS educational charity, Sherborne Abbey and Waitrose.

A choir sang and everyone was invited to tie a ribbon to a tree, with prayers or wishes for the future.

The area was created with the help of donations from a number of the above organisations and the assistance of local people, including the Revd Lesley McCreadie, Education Officer for Sherborne Abbey.

Revd McCreadie said, “After many months of planning, designing, clearing and planting the new quiet space for reflection and prayer was finished; well as finished as any garden can ever be.

“Set in what had been a rarely used quad, this space now echoes to the sound of running water, the wind moving through sculptures and the prayer flags, the scent of various plants as well as the sound of children talking quietly.

“The children had contributed to building the water feature, the willow sculptures, the beautiful mosaic, the planting and much more.”
