Salisbury Memorial Park will be filled with music, paying tribute to mothers, grandmothers and other special women, this Mother’s Day, 12 May.

Salisbury Mayor, Gillian Aldridge, OAM said Mother’s Day can be a difficult day for some families.

It can be quite tough, particularly for those who’ve lost loved ones,” said Mayor Aldridge. “Mother’s Day is a special day and for those visiting the Salisbury Memorial Park, with the music helping to create a feeling of tranquillity and love.”

It will be the first time Salisbury Memorial Park has invited musicians to help mark Mother’s Day and families are welcome to stay and enjoy the ambience that will be created. There will be a wide variety of musicians performing including the Salisbury Brass Band, a harpist, violinist, guitarists and a Ukelele Group.

Salisbury Memorial Park is on the corner of Spains Road and York Terrace Salisbury Downs, opposite the Chidda Railway Station. It offers wide open spaces, perfumed and vibrant rose gardens and green lawns, making it a tranquil resting place.

Salisbury Memorial Park opened in 1931, when Annie Jane Argent, was laid to rest on 31 December. It is run by the City of Salisbury. It is a non-denominational cemetery offering a selection of individual graves, a variety of cremation memorial sites, a mausoleum and special memorial dedications.

The Mother’s Day music will be enjoyed from 9am till 1pm.
