A Big Thank You Margaret Enoch -Her Family and Friends!


This morning I had quite a nice surprise when opening the morning Royal Mail.

 In amongst my Post was a letter from a Funeral Directors. I was surprised and touched that the correspondence contained two cheques.

 One from the Brother of  Miss Margaret Enoch and another from a mourner attending the Funeral.

Anyone Knowing Miss Enoch would vouch for her personality and stature here in our great community.

So how nice to know that Wednesfield, through  ‘Wednesfield in Bloom’ will be able to remember Miss Enoch, her family and friends when they look at the great flowers, and the huge love and commitment, that our Volunteers give to ensure Wednesfield Village and Ashmore Park is looking colourful and vibrant.

On Margaret’s death Wednesfield History Society had this to say – “It is with great sadness that we have to say that Margaret Enoch passed away.  Ray Fellows Wednesfield Author said  “I interviewed Margaret for Wednesfield Magazine in her house in 2015.

Margaret loved Wednesfield history and gave me many photographs of Wednesfield that I had not seen before mainly about the Pickering’s, she also gave me a hand drawn map detailing the names of the fields in and around our village. Yes, Margaret knew our Wednesfield better than most and she was a fountain of knowledge as to how our village was many years ago. Margaret lived in Ashmore Park, she was 87 years of age, the very best of luck to you Margaret on your new journey, and when you get there don’t forget to tell them all about Wednesfield.”
