Betty Cooke, 85, was distraught when she saw what the vandals had done in Queens Park, Crewe. Like many other benches it was vandalized and thrown in the lake. The bench was installed in memory of Betty’s daughter Susan, who moved to Australia and died of a brain tumour in 2002.
It was Susan’s dying wish to have a bench installed to enable others to enjoy the park she loved so much and to have her ashes scattered there. A new bench is now in the park thanks to sponsors lets hope it last a bit longer this time
Like the rest of Crewe The park has been covered in snow which came down very quickly but fortunately didn't last very long
