Important landmark for reflection nearly ready for opening


share close


The Armed Forces Community Garden at Hillfield Park is nearly finished. Over the next few weeks, there will be some finishing touches, but most of the work has now been completed. It will provide a place for people to sit and reflect.

In the run-up to its official opening on 16 July, the Royal British Legion and Solihull Council are speaking to some of the people involved about what the Armed Forces Community Garden means to them and what they hope it will bring.

Earlier this week, in the second of these videos, Solihull Council caught up with Cllr Alison Rolf – the Council’s Cabinet Member for Safer and Stronger Communities, who is also the Council’s Armed Forces Champion – and Cllr Ken Hawkins – the Council’s Cabinet Member for Environment and Highways. They have both been involved in the project since the start.

They talked about how important it will be for our veterans, our serving personnel, and residents who have lost loved ones in the pandemic.

Watch out for further updates via the Royal British Legion’s and Solihull Council’s websites as well as across social media platforms.
