inSwindon Business Improvement District has dedicated a tree at Wharf Green – in the centre of the retail area – to the memory of Swindonians lost to Covid-19.

"The tree is a lasting symbol of life, a place to reflect, remember and celebrate the lives of those we have lost and may not have been able to say a proper goodbye to," said Anita Bellinger, inSwindon BID Company executive director.

"It is swathed in warm white lights, that twinkle against the night sky, and surrounded by wooden benches, with plenty of space to safely dwell and reminisce."
