In 2017 the members decided on a project to increase the number of benches in Tividale Park.
We visited ArtYard in Cradley Heath and were introduced to Vince from Iconoclastics Ltd. who specializes in industrial riveted style product. We came up with an idea for some bespoke benches where we could laser cut a design in the back. An example are the benches in Oldbury Town Centre, shown below.
In January 2018 a request for £2000 was submitted to Midcounties Co-op for a community grant to cover the cost of 4 bespoke benches – this is still under view.
At our March 2018 meeting we heard that the Council plans to install 6 new benches in the park. We hope to be involved in the decision making regarding location.
