Complimentary Spaces

Quiet Room

The Quiet Room has always been an important part of the services we provide at The Laura Centre. This is a peaceful space where you can be with your thoughts, feelings and memories.
The room can be booked through reception or through your counsellor.

The Quiet Room has been established and renovated over the years by kind donations from, amongst others, Jan and Steve Williams, Ann and Barrie Meades and more recently by Julie Goodrich. The Quiet Room also contains the…

…Book of remembrance:

The Book of Remembrance is a special book which is keep on display in our quiet room. Each day we turn a page and light a candle to remember those who died on that day. For a small fee, clients can request for a name to be placed in the book.
This book was first donated by the Meade family who lost their son/brother, David Meades to leukaemia in 1990 at age 18.

Quiet Garden

The Laura Centre has its own garden situated at Abbey Park near to Pet’s Corner. The garden consists of rose beds representing the rays of the sun. The garden was donated to the Centre by Abbey Park and the roses were part-funded by The Friends of Abbey Park. The garden is open to all and is a quiet place to sit and reflect. The planting was completed by TLC volunteers and Abbey Park staff. The Laura Centre would like to thank Abbey Park, The Friends of Abbey Park and all of the volunteers that helped make the garden possible.

Please use our garden at any time. It is open as part of Abbey Park and is most easily accessed from Gate G.
