Crocus planting brightens up war memorial
7:30am Wednesday 24th October 2012 in News
MORE than 60 volunteers joined forces to plant 20,000 crocus corms around Hoobrook War Memorial in Kidderminster.
The planting sessions were an initiative by Kidderminster-Husum Twinning Association to provide residents and visitors with a taste of the Crocus Festival held in Husum in Germany.
Each year, the Castle Park in Husum is covered with purple crocuses.
Year 11 students from King Charles I School, 12th Kidderminster Brownies and KD9 Scout groups, both from Spennells, joined with Community Neighbourhood Wardens and residents to help with planting.
The bulbs were funded by the Twinning Association, Aggborough and Spennells Community Action Group and Councillors Helen and Peter Dyke.
Trish Preedy, Chairman of the community action group said: “We were delighted with the enthusiasm and hard work of all the volunteers who helped during all the planting sessions and are now looking forward to the flowers blooming in Spring so all the volunteers can show friends and family the lasting contribution they have made to their local area.”
