Barricade fabricated a bespoke steel memorial bench to celebrate the life of Oxfordshire teenager Megan Biddle, who tragically passed away in 2015. We were approached by Thame Town Council to manufacture the bench due to our ability to produce high-quality, fully bespoke steel products. The bench is in the design of a skateboard as Megan was a keen skateboarder.
The memorial bench features a selection of the items that were special to Megan, including music, trainers (sneakers?), beanie hats and a selection of stars. All of the items were to be incorporated into a large skateboard shaped bench and ultimately provide a place for family and friends to gather and remember the life of a remarkable young lady. The design was a collaboration between Megan's friends and family and local artist Michael Gibbs who brought all of their ideas together.
