THE Friends of Brinton Park group is looking for keen sewers and knitters to make as many flowers as possible to decorate the park in the run-up to the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

Residents are being asked to knit or crochet flowers in red, white, blue and purple which will adorn the gates and railings around the park in the run-up to the group’s Jubilee Fete on 4th June. 

The idea came from Kidderminster resident Heather Prangley.

People are welcome to bring their flowers to the park on Saturday, May 21 at 11am, flowers will be displayed for two weeks until June 11.

Group chair Phil Ginnings said: “Inspired by the Poppy knitting project that marked the First World War centenary commemorations, Heather came to us with this suggestion and we fully endorse it.

"This is a wonderful opportunity for people of all ages, abilities and experiences to come together and make the Queen’s Jubilee a colourful and unforgettable public holiday. What a great way for people to contribute a little something to the park and Kidderminster.

"Everyone is getting involved from local schools to Age UK.”

People can go to or find “Friends of Brinton Park” to find the knitting patterns, advice and information about how to display your flowers.
