Memorial garden award

The 6 Regiment Memorial Garden ‘A Homecoming Prayer’ recently won a Gold Award at Harrogate’s Spring Flower Show.

It’s now been moved to form part of a larger memorial space at the Regiment’s new base at Dishforth Airfield in North Yorkshire.

The Japanese-themed garden, which is currently being bedded-in, was designed by Northumbrian Landscaping owner Peter Cunliffe and sponsored by BALI.

BALI affiliate members supported the memorial garden by providing hard and soft landscaping materials.

BALI was also joined by main sponsor Hesco and worked with Help for Heroes to support the garden from conception through to build.

The garden was commissioned following the Regt’s return from being stationed in Germany.

Padre J Harding is still keen for volunteers and donors to get involved in the project.

At present 6 Regt’s green fingered spouses are helping to create portable gardens to go on display at RHS Garden Harlow Carr as part of the 6 Regiment RLC Memorial Garden Project.

The gardens will be shown at RHS Harlow Carr (in Harrogate) over 23-25 Jun.

Congratulations to RLC soldier LCpl Stu Elvin of the Mission Training and Mobilisation Centre (MTMC), Bassingbourn Barracks, who has received two bronze medals at the World Rowing Indoor Championships 2021. LCpl Elvin has represented the Army in rowing for a number of years. Having individually qualified at the British Championships for the Men's (age 30-39) 500m to race at the World Championships, he was also selected to represent the Armed Forces in the Men's Team race. The races took place on 23 Feb 21, where LCpl achieved third place in his individual race and an hour later, he received another bronze medal as he played an integral part of the Armed Forces Men's Team. His commitment and success in rowing is nothing short of impressive with his ability to balance work, training and family life along with the ongoing restrictions of COVID-19. Competing in any sport at this level requires a unique strength and determination – something which the LCpl displays in abundance, putting in hours of solitary training, where he has had to use his mental resilience to push himself further than most would. ...
