Boleyn garden reopens


West Ham and Barratt London have reopened the Memorial Garden at the site of the Hammers former home, the Boleyn Ground.

The Memorial Garden opens to the public next Thursday August following a series of private visits last month for families and friends of supporters that are lovingly remembered at the site.

The design for the new Memorial Garden has been carefully and respectfully considered using feedback from family members, with West Ham United and Barratt London working closely on the design principles throughout the process.

The Memorial Garden features a special plaque honouring the name, year of birth and year of passing of all those supporters remembered there, as well as a Memorial Capsule containing special items and plaques dedicated to their memory.

The trees and soil remain preserved, with benches integrated to provide a special place of reflection for families.
