WWI Memorial Garden created, thanks to Bromsgrove scout groups

THE TOWN’S historic St John’s Church now has a First World War memorial garden, thanks to the hard work of the 1st Bromsgrove Beavers, Cubs and Scouts.

The young people joined forces for the project which took place throughout the summer – it began in June and August was particularly impressive as the poppies were in full bloom.

The garden itself is in the shape of a poppy and the flowers beneath poignantly read 1914-1918.

Everything was done in red, white and blue and the organisers wish to thank Webbs garden centre which supplied many of the plants that were used.
