New Benches and Picnic Tables for Rowley Fields

Tuesday 22nd May 2018 saw the arrival of new hardwood benches to replace the rather tired ones located in the top field. Thanks to some super support from 11 donors and a donation from Waitrose Community Matters (Stratford upon Avon) we have been able to fund not one but two new benches. The brass plaques from the old bench have been polished up and fitted and are accompanied by two new plaques in memory of Lucy Strauss Mum, husband and teacher from Welcombe Hills School, and Val, Kathy Starkey’s Mum – both of whom loved the fields and hills. We hope the benches will be enjoyed by many people in the years to come.

In addition to the benches the Town Trust have installed two picnic tables which make a great addition and have already been used by walkers and local families.

Special thanks to Gavin Griffiths for project managing the benches, to Justin Williams and the Town Trust Team for the picnic tables and the staff at Waitrose for supporting our group.

Below are some before and after photos.
