Prince’s Park

Friends of Princess Park – part of Burntwood Action Group – have made this wonderful Armistice Day Memorial in Prince’s Park, Burntwood Green. The two full size soldiers have been made from plywood and timber supplied free of charge by G. E. Collis & Sons Ltd of Chasetown and made by Barry Colbourne from a template supplied by Redwood Roofing.
The 1000 plus poppies, which have taken many months to prepare and are placed around the three trees, have been manufactured from old plastic bottles by Pam Chamberlain.
The park bench is currently being refurbished by BAG and will be back in place soon.
