Dominic Fernandez ('Dom') Valdez B.E.M. (1939-1999) Born in Liverpool to a Spanish father and an English mother, Dom moved to Runcorn in 1973, to the recently built New Town, where he found employment as a caretaker at Southgate Primary School (now Hallwood Park Primary School). He lived at 220 The Uplands, the house he would live in until his death. Halton Haven Hospice was entirely Dom's vision, and was originally known as The Dom Valdez Centre For Cancer Care, 'Halton Haven'. From humble beginnings at a community centre, and later at a bungalow in Windmill Hill, Dom and his team of volunteers were given the land in Murdishaw where Halton Haven now stands by Runcorn Development Corporation. The first building, which is today the Day Hospice Unit, was built in 1984. This was followed by the adjoining Inglenook in 1986, and the Inpatient Unit a few years later. The Amanda Edwards Unit was officially opened in 1991 by Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York. Halton Haven Hospice provides palliative care through a range of services to individuals, and support for their families, in Runcorn, Widnes and the surrounding areas. It aims to relieve the sickness, suffering and distress of people resulting in particular from cancer and other terminal illnesses. As an independent charity it must generate much of its income by its own means, and it is only because of the generosity of mainly local people that the hospice can survive. In 1992 Dom received the British Empire Medal for his charitable work. He was presented with his medal by Sir William Arthur Bromley-Davenport K.C.V.O., Lord Lieutenant of Cheshire. Dom was much loved and respected by people who knew him and by those who were fortunate enough to work alongside him. He was buried here at Halton Haven.

Maison Fond. Leandro Erlich (Buenos Aires, 1973) est un artiste argentin. Installée sur le parvis de la Gard du Nord, Maison fond a été inaugurée dans le cadre de Nuit Blanche, en partenariat avec Gares & Connexions, le 3 octobre 2015. L'architecture est depuis tout temps un symbole fort de la culture humaine, elle nous rappelle qui nous sommes et souvent ce que nous avons perdu. Comme une grande partie de l'oeuvre de Leandro Erlich, cette oeuvre résonne dans notre inconscient, au travers d'un langage visuel onirique, et pointe du doigt un sujet de préoccupation urgent et actuel. L'artiste a choisi le titre pour sa correspondance phonétique avec "Mes enfants", qui vivront le futur que nous décidons aujourd'hui. A la fois frappante accessible, cette installation touche à la réalité humaine universelle de l'impermanence et aux dilemmes urgents et précis auxquels nous sommes confrontés. Cette installation accompagne - en marge de la Conférence cadre des Nations unies sur les changements climatiques - la réflexion liée à ces enjeux.

Saint-Pierre des Minimes. Succédant à un oratoire rural, l'église actuelle fut construite au cours du XIIe siècle. Au début du XVIIe siècle, les Minimes, ordre de bénédictins réformés, édifièrent les bâtiments claustraux voisins qui servent d'école depuis 1791. Le clocher et presque toute la partie droite de l'église furent abattus lors de la Révolution. Le portail est orné de sculptures très abîmées: le Christ en gloire entouré des symboles des quatre évangélistes. Un groupe de saintes femmes fréquentait cette église et fut protégé par le cardinal de Bérulle et le Père de Condren, prêtres de l'Oratoire; parmi elles: Barbe Frémault (1599-1636), servante morte en odeur de sainteté, qui y fut inhumée, et son héritière spirituelle, Antoinette Vivenel (1612-1678), une Sévigné cloîtrée."
