It’s always been a focal point – Alison Congalton

We don’t live in The Forest, but my Mum and Step-Dad do and we visit every month and nearly always come to Beechenhurst and walk up to The Chair. It’s always been a focal point for a picture.

When I told my 6 year old son Tom it was being taken down, he cried. That’s how much it means to us!!

I asked Tom if he wanted to say anything, but he got all tearful and said ‘I’m just really upset that it will be gone really, really soon’!
