Theresa May MP opens the Winton Garden

  • Jul 18, 2017

On Friday 14 July Theresa May opened the Winton Garden at Oaken Grove Park in Maidenhead.

The Winton Garden was designed and built by the Royal Borough in honour of Sir Nicholas’ actions during the Second World War that led to the rescue of 669 children from Nazi-occupied Prague.

The special opening ceremony included international guests and representatives from across the community including ambassadorial representatives from the Czech Republic and Slovakia, Sir Nicholas’ family and members of the Maidenhead Synagogue.

Theresa May:

“It was a pleasure and an honour to be part of the official opening of the Winton Garden. Sir Nicholas was a man who devoted his whole life, day in and day out to active goodness.

It is therefore wonderful that we have this garden in Maidenhead and I hope it will inspire people, young and old, to come here, think about Sir Nicholas and be encouraged to help others.”

Sir Nicholas lived much of his life in Pinkneys Green until he died in 2015 at the age of 106.
