In March, the Friends of Lichfield Historic Parks and other volunteers helped the park team at Beacon Park to re-sow the area which was originally created in March 2014 and will continue until autumn 2018 to commemorate the First World War.

Betty Bradbury, member of the friends group, said: “My granddaughter, who helped us sow the seeds, will be so pleased to see her efforts were so worthwhile.”

Ken and Ondre Webb, also Friends of Lichfield Historic Parks, added: “There are lots of poppies in bloom. If you are in the area do go and see the poppy field. It really was worth all the effort.”

Tim Lock, Project Leader and Beacon Park’s Community Gardener, said: “We have a fantastic group of volunteers who come to help out at Beacon Park. I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their hard work.”

The poppy field is on the far side of the golf course, next to the allotments.
