Memorial Bench for Jennifer Ross

Jennifer Ross was a regular visitor who loved coming to Acorn Farm with her Grandchildren.  Sadly, Jennifer recently passed away, and as a tribute her family purchased a dedicated a lovely bench in her memory.

The photo shows Matthew and Andrea (Jennifer’s son and daughter) with the bench, which has been placed behind the tractor in the children’s play area.  It is a very fitting place, as Jennifer “loved to watch her Grandchildren play”.

We hope our visitors will enjoy sitting on “Mum’s Bench” and watching their children play.
