Volunteers turned out to get stuck in with the spring tidy up of a memorial garden dedicated to babies.

Stillbirth and neonatal death charity Sands put out a call for people to lend a hand with the project on Sunday.

Jackie Gentle from the West Herts and Bucks Sands branch said: “We had a great turn-out at the garden tidy-up and the garden is looking really lovely.

“We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who helped out.”

The Forget-Me-Not garden in Hemel Hempstead’s Gadebridge Park was opened in 2004 following fundraising by the good cause to create a memorial for families touched by the loss of a baby.
