Jason's Memorial Garden

Jason Pope has been missing for over 10 years, he was kidnapped in Angola, Africa. Hubby knows him, and they got to work in Angola same time together, it was in the year 1999! They arrived two years before me, yet there was still civil wars during my time but it didn't last long as the leader called Savimbi got killed somewhere, late year 2001. Hubby and I wanted to visit this festival, to share to his family our experiences and understanding about this place, that we've been there where Jason was. Sad really..

My dad-in-law forwarded this too me, this caught my attention straight away as it reminded me how Local Bandidos treated expatriates (Filipinos, English, Portuguese, South Africans, etc) during the war time. In fact, there were Filipinos got killed too!

His family have created a Memorial Garden for him and it is only open to the general public for special occasions and will be open over the Folk Festival, and
once again we will return to the fantastic Jason Garden at this years Folk Festival.

Located at the very top of East Cliff Walk (Just past the Lido/East Cliff Cafe), this amazing Garden has a stunning view over Teignmouth and is the perfect location for listening to folk festival. It was a treat for everybody that made the steap walk to the Garden but is well worth it.

It's a Stunning clifftop garden with 180 degree panoramic view of sea and South Devon coastline. Modern, stylish design with high quality landscaping and bold planting, creating areas of individuality within an harmonious whole. This tactile garden is accessible and of interest to all and its underlying ethos leaves a lasting impression. Seeing is believing.

Jason's Garden has been showcased on the BBC's Open Garden and has been included in the Yellow Book.
