The Diamond Jubilee Garden
To commemorate HM the Queen's Diamond Jubilee a new garden has been created at the rear of the Civic Hall where a piece of ground has been transformed into a garden that will be enjoyed by users of the hall for many years to come. The garden was formally named by Dr Robin Buxton, Deputy Lieutenant of Oxfordshire on Sunday 24th June 2012 as part of the Council's Diamond Jubilee celebrations.
Dr Buxton is pictured above with the Councillor Mr Peter Read , who was Mayor of Didcot at that time, after the unveiling of the commemorative stone.
The stone, pictured above, was kindly donated by Hamels Memorials. The garden was completed by two benches, one, inscribed with the words "QUEEN ELIZABETH II DIAMOND JUBILEE 2012" is sited between two large planters at the rear of the Civic Hall. The other was kindly donated by Councillor Mr Peter Read.
