Covid Garden of Reflection is being created next to St Helier hospital. It's a space for:

  • quiet reflection
  • celebrating the coming together of the community
  • remembering those that we have lost and
  • giving thanks to key workers

We asked the public for reflection poems about life over the last 12 months. These could be on the theme of:

  • the NHS
  • loss of a loved one and
  • a special place to reflect

Congratulations to the following entrants whose poems were chosen to be displayed in the garden:

  • Jackie Beale with her poem; Remember.
  • Denise Tuck with her poem; This Bench.
  • Hannah Man with her poem; Bright
  • Olivia Chantler with her poem; The Year we call came Together
  • Toby Cranefield with his poem; To Grumpsy with Love!
  • Libby Cranefield with her poem; Recipe for a Grumpsy.

Read all the winning and runner-up poems.
