The National Memorial Arboretum

Building a world-class Centre for Remembrance
Ten years ago, the National Memorial Arboretum (NMA), founded by David Childs and Group Captain Leonard Cheshire, was opened to the public.

In 2007, the public profile of the Arboretum changed when the Armed Forces Memorial was dedicated by the Archbishop of Canterbury in the presence of Her Majesty the Queen: visitor numbers dramatically increased from 65,000 to 300,000.

Today, the Arboretum is the UK’s year round centre for Remembrance; a spiritually uplifting place which honours the fallen, recognises service, suffering and sacrifice and fosters pride in our country. The NMA’s vision is to create a world-class Centre for Remembrance, worthy of those who have given so much.
Boeing UK’s sponsorship of the National Memorial Arboretum aligns with the Boeing’s Global Corporate Citizenship objective towards education, community cohesion and environment.
