Don and Peggy Thornton-Smith's memorial grove

Don and Peggy Thornton-Smith grove

We want to live on not because of ourselves,

But because of the people who care.

It's living and doing for somebody else

On that, life and splendour depends.

And the joy of the world when it's all added up

Is found in the making of friends.

Written by Don in Peggy's autograph book, November 1942.

Add trees to this grove

Nan and Grandad, I will always miss your tea & biscuits and walks with the dogs. But still not sure about the knitted suits! All my love Sam.

Your grove of trees

The trees in this grove will be carefully planted in protected sites in the Scottish Highlands where they will create homes for wildlife and forests for the future.

Scots pine against a summer blue sky.
Twinflowers in bloom on pine woodland floor.
A Scotch argus butterfly on common ragwort.
