The Willow Tree Memorial

Balm Green Gardens - City Hall, Sheffield.  Built March 2023

This stainless steel sculpture representing a willow tree has been installed as a permanent memorial.

A space to celebrate the small acts of kindness, support positive change and remember those we have lost.

The tree memorialises the Covid pandemic, which was a historic global event. No community was untouched by the pandemic. The experiences of Sheffield residents were captured, stored in the City’s archives and incorporated into the design of this memorial. As we learn about each other’s lives we can lay the foundations for a compassionate Sheffield.
