A NEW display board in honour of the Windermere Children has been unveiled.

The board can be found in the gardens of Windermere Library - the home of the Lake District Holocaust Project.

Project director Trevor Avery has welcomed the board and said: “My heartfelt thanks to Jill Visser and to all the supporters who helped is with the garden, and those who are helping us establish a fitting commemoration of the links between 300 remarkable youngsters and the people, and place, who welcomed them in the summer of 1945.”

The commemorative garden was opened in 2015 and designed by Ms Visser.

The garden’s opening coincided with the 70th anniversary of the Holocaust survivors’ arrival in Cumbria.

It was developed into a story of the children told through flowers and plants.
