Work has started on a special memorial garden dedicated to football legend Sir Bobby Robson.

A 400 sq m site is being prepared close to the Newcastle United football ground St James's Park in memory of Sir Bobby, the former Newcastle and England manager who died last year aged 76.

According to BBC News, the garden will feature trees, planters, a tiered seating area and a series of stone plinths designed to convey aspects of Sir Bobby's life and work.

The project, which is being undertaken by Newcastle City Council and regeneration company NE1Ltd, is due to be completed by spring 2011.

Sculptor Graeme Mitcheson has also been commissioned to work on the plinth designs, the BBC said.

In addition to his numerous footballing achievements, Sir Bobby established a charitable foundation which has so far raised more than £2 million for cancer research in Newcastle.

News of the memorial garden comes after the South Wales Argus reported last week that a council worker in South Wales helped a school "eco-committee" set up a wooden log cabin through a charitable donation of his time and labour.
