Your generous donation funds the buying of the bench, delivery to the Botanic Garden, maintenance year-on-year, creation of a brass plaque with engraving and creating a base for the bench when installed.

The benches are produced by Swansea-based Second Life Products, using recycled plastic. They are durable and will last many years, the guarantee is 10 years from the time of installation, but the benches should last years longer.

After 10 years, the condition of the bench will be assessed and if deemed aesthetically pleasing and fit-for-purpose, will remain in the Botanic Garden by the decision of the Curator. If the bench is deemed to be in an unsuitable condition, it will be retired from the Botanic Garden.

If contact details are accessible, the donor may be contacted and asked whether they would like the bench removed and whether a replacement may be possible at the cost of the donor. In unusual circumstances, the benches may need to be moved temporarily or permanently in line with developments in the Botanic Garden. The plaques can be inscribed in Welsh and English.
