The beaches, the fields and the streets - Designer: Horticap 

With the 70th anniversary of VE Day just around the corner on 8 May 2015, this garden echoes Winston Churchill’s famous ‘we will fight them on the beaches’ speech.

It incorporates a range of sculptures, staging and planting depicting the beaches, fields and celebratory streets scenes from 1945, including dunes, wildflower meadow and dig for victory veg plot.
