On 18th March 2020 a cheery plum tree was by the Friends of Bilbrook and the Forest of Mercia (CIC) to commemorate the life of David Ward, Bilbrook resident and friend to many in the local area. It has been planted on Heath Farm Road, near his home on Greenoak Road. Already in bud, it will soon blossom and in a few years time will bear fruit for the local wildlife.
A plaque will soon be fixed to the metal guard. Sincere thanks to Lynne Winkle who arranged the collection for the tree.
