Memorial fund set up for HW editor

Woodland to be created as permanent memory to Pete Weston

A memorial fund has been set up in honour of Horticulture Week editor Pete Weston, who died suddenly on 25 October. His partner, Lel, has decided to create a permanent memorial to Pete in the form of a woodland in Kent, with a view to buying an area of woodland or a piece of land that can be planted up with trees. The Kent countryside held a special place in Pete’s heart as it was where he spent his childhood holidays, and where he has been living since 2001, when Lel became head gardener at the National Trust property Ightham Mote. The fund is being co-ordinated by HW publisher Haymarket. Those wishing to make a donation can send cheques, made out to the Pete Weston Memorial Fund, to Philip Goodman, Haymarket Publishing, 174 Hammersmith Road, London W6 7JP. If there is any money left over after the purchase of the land, it will be donated to the family. For more information on the fund, or if you have suggestions for fundraising activities, please contact hortweek@haynet.com. Information on the progress of the fund will be reported in future issues of HW.
