Councillor backs Burntwood’s bid to snatch world’s smallest park crown

A Burntwood councillor has backed the town’s bid to nab the world’s smallest park crown.

A challenge has been launched to the current title holder, Mill Ends Park in Portland, USA.

However, Burntwood’s American rival has leapt to the defence of its “glorified flower pot”, insisting it meets the criteria – and have even claimed it to be a leprechaun sanctuary!

But Councillor Steve Norman, the leader of the Labour group on Lichfield District Council, has backed Burntwood’s bid.

“There’s no contest,” he said. “As long as the tree trunks in Princes Park are kept clear you can get in and picnic on the grass or sit on the bench or lean – carefully – on the fence.

“Now that is a park!”
