According to Henley Mayor Kellie Hinton:
"For a few decades, various people in the town including local councillors have wanted to create a memorial to celebrate that Henley was George and Olivia Harrison's family home.
"Unfortunately nothing suggested has ever been quite right.
"The idea for a garden came about last summer as a result of conversations with local woman Emma Sweet. We wrote a joint letter to Mrs Harrison and asked for her permission and support.
"Discussions are still ongoing, with the aim of creating a peaceful, tranquil space for residents and visitors to enjoy in memory of somebody who meant an incredible amount to the people of Henley."
