Friends and Anenomes at Brampton Park

AMATEUR gardeners young and old are joining forces to sow the seeds of a special floral project at Newcastle’s Brampton Park.

Children from Giggles & Wiggles nursery and members of the North Staffs Model Engineering Society will be planting a mixture of anemones and bluebells at the park next week.  

The inter-generational event is aimed at creating a ‘living link’ between the park’s wooden soldier to the life-size metal sculpture of a woman that was installed nearby to mark the centenary of the First World War.

Once established, the flowers will create a vivid 25-metre red and blue swathe in late spring and early summer each year, connecting the two artworks.

The soldier figure was commissioned by Newcastle-under-Lyme Borough Council and the Model Engineering Society – who run the miniature steam railway at the Brampton – and is located adjacent to Pitfield House, where the nursery is based. 

Children from the nursery and the Society will hold their planting event at 10.30am on Wednesday 14 December.
