LIVING wisteria sculptures have been unveiled across the district to honour and remember members of the community who lost their lives during the pandemic.

The sculptures, designed by Jon Holmes from Warwick District Council’s (WDC) Green Spaces team, are at Jubilee House in Kenilworth, Jephson Gardens in Leamington, St Nicholas Park in Warwick and at Acre Close in Whitnash.

WDC chairman Sidney Syson said: “These beautiful memorials have been inspired by the spirit and resilience of our local communities, with the entwining of the wisteria branches around the sculptures representing human efforts to overcome the virus.”

Kenilworth mayor Samantha Cooke added: “By planting this living sculpture, we not only remember all those we have lost, but also honour the key workers and volunteers who did so many positive and selfless acts to support our local community during difficult times.

“This memorial will provide a tranquil place where they can seek some comfort knowing that the legacy of those lost is not only being recognised but will be remembered for many generations to come.”
