THE Lord Lieutenant of Hampshire, Dame Mary Fagan, made a private visit to look around Emsworth’s memorial garden.

Dame Mary enjoyed her tour of the garden, which features a sculpture of a soldier. She was thrilled to receive a miniature version of the sculpture.

Virginia Wilson-Smith, from the garden’s Friends group, said: ‘We felt very honoured.’
