Henley mayor proposes memorial garden for George Harrison

The mayor of Henley-on-Thames, where George Harrison lived for many years in Friar Park, has proposed that the city erect a garden in his honor, not a statue. The suggestion was made last month during a meeting last month of the recreation and amenities committee on Tuesday last week. “I would like to see a garden for George Harrison rather than a statue,” Lorraine Hiller said in the local paper. “This is something I would like to see realised.” The idea was first floated in 2001, the paper said.
