Volunteers have been working hard to dig out and plant up the patch of land, which belongs to Ribble Village Health Centre.

A sheltered seating area gives Rosie’s loved ones a quiet place to sit and remember her.

A Facebook page was set up to post regular updates and photos of how the garden is coming on.

It says: “Rosie was tragically taken from us on the 7th February 2019. All the flowers that were left at the end of Village Drive were beautiful, made it look so bright and showed just how much she was loved.

“We have been given permission off the doctors and the council to turn this space into a memorial garden.

“We are wanting to dig a patch out and make it so the weeds won‚Äôt grow through and plant lots of beautiful plants/flowers to make it colourful, just like Rosie.

“This will give people somewhere to go to feel close to Rosie, share memories and provide a remembrance for her family and friends.”

Local clubs and businesses held competitions and collections to raise money for the garden.
