Glade of Light: from concept to creation
The memorial has been designed by BCA Landscape (BCAL) in conjunction with Smiling Wolf and Pro Landscaper. The project was close to Andy Thomson's heart, being based in the Northwest and having friends of his daughters there on the terrible night of the Manchester Arena bombing. Most of the design took three to four years, with the COVID-19 pandemic being a factor on the timeline. But even with the challenges, Andy and his team managed to create a contemporary memorial.
