New trees for memorial park 

For the up and coming centenary of the Great War, Stourport Town Council has purchased 108 fruit trees which will form a Memorial orchard to be sited within the grounds of the Memorial Park. The 108 trees to be planted are in memory of the 108 servicemen who gave their lives during the said war. There will be a mixture of apples, pears, cherries, damson, plum, gage and meddler. These trees will year on year give a brilliant display of floral colour each spring, offer fruit at harvest time, and importantly host a variety of birds and pollinators. The area will become a wildlife and nature area.

In addition to the fruit trees, the Rotary Club have kindly purchased and donated an oak tree in honour of the fallen servicemen and this too will be planted in a prominent position within the park.

Further to the above, two benches have been purchased by Stourport Town Council depicting WW1 Tommies and poppies. These will be installed as soon as they have been delivered to the park.

The Monday Night Group from Stourport, who perform the annual pantomime for charity, have donated a substantial amount to purchase and install a defibrillator outside the Elizabeth Mills day centre in Sion Gardens, Stourport.

Cllr Ken Henderson also made a donation from his Wyre Forest Community Leadership Fund and money raised through raffles at the centre was used to make up the full amount. 

Sam Maher, chairman of the Monday Night Group said “We are delighted that money raised from the pantomime can be used for vital projects such as this.”

Cllr Ken Henderson states “ I am only too pleased that my community funding is available and I feel this defibrillator is perfectly placed to serve a wide area of the town including the riverside.“

Ann Hill, secretary of Elizabeth Mills centre is over the moon that this project has finally been fulfilled.

Bandstand work - Memorial Park

Lickhill Memorial Park Bandstand

The conifer trees around the bandstand have been removed in order that the bandstand can have restoration work carried out.

The trees completely cloaked off the inner bandstand from view and also from time to time the bandstand is being used by drug users who leave behind their waste.

New side panels will be fitted to the bandstand and benches incorporated into the structure creating an unhidden and good sized sitting area for all to enjoy.
