Remembrance Benches for Wednesfield.

Your Wednesfield North City Councillors Rita and Mary with myself, are using Ward funds to place three commemorative benches into three separate locations within our Ward.

We have identified a location on the walkways between Coppice Farm and Ashmore Park. We are considering placing a Remembrance Bench in situation here at this location.

A bench has also been requested by local residents of the area numerous times over the last two years. This action will satisfy that request.

A second location has been identified on the pathway linking Sudbury Close and Linthouse Lane. There is consideration taking place as to the exact position to place this Remembrance Bench. What it will do is give a very useful amenity to what is an attractive and well used walkway.

The third location is in the Ashmore Park itself, where users can enjoy the rays of the sun, and sit and watch the football matches that are played there.

These three locations have been identified by us to City Officials. If you have any comments with regards to any of these three locations please make them.
