Thank you so much for everything you do. I cannot imagine living in Bow without the cemetery. It is such an important part of my family’s lives.

Thank you FoTHCP for all your hard work. These wild flowers are to memorialize those lives lost to homophobic and transphobic hate crime.

Sarah Pocknell 21st August 2021

THCP is such a beautiful space and vital to the local community, both in terms of residents’ and visitors’ wellbeing and in providing a home to our treasured local wildlife. Let’s support it in every way we can!
