One Thousand Hearts Celebrate the Reopening of The Retreat

The Retreat rooftop garden has reopened at Telford Centre and is celebrating with the installation of one thousand hearts, a lasting tribute to the community’s ability to pull together during the pandemic.

The Retreat roof top garden has been specifically designed in close partnership with Telford Autism Hub. It provides a quiet space with a wide range of scents, textures and colours that give a wonderful sensory experience. Closed during the pandemic, the garden is now back open so visitors can enjoy this quiet and relaxing space.

Visitors to the garden can also enjoy the bright and wonderful colours of The Thousand Heart project, a wonderful rainbow mural which carries personalised messages from the Telford Community. The messages are those of remembrance for those lost during the pandemic and of gratitude to all those that have given so much to help others.

Katie Broome, Marketing Manager at Telford Centre said “We’d like to give huge thanks to the Telford Community for pulling together this past year. It’s wonderful to see visitors returning to the centre and we are very pleased to be able to reopen The Retreat for everyone to enjoy. We’d also like to thank ABM UK, who sponsored The Thousand Heart project and helped to bring this wonderful piece of art to The Retreat. We hope to welcome more visitors to come and enjoy the space and take time to reflect”.

Located on 3rd floor of yellow beech car park, by House of Fraser, The Retreat is open daily. For full details visit
