Cherries for our orchard

We have now added two cherry trees to our orchard and look forward to seeing how they blossom and grow.

The trees were donated to FOCM by a family wishing to remember their mother who used to live in Grove Park, in fact, she lived right by the park in Amblecote  Road when she was young! Maybe some of you even remember the Jackson family?

The family have also purchased a plaque which will be attached to the tree and reads as follows;

In loving memory of Barbara Rivers (nee Jackson)

The kiss of the sun for pardon,

The song of the birds for mirth,

One is nearer God’s heart in a garden

Than anywhere else on earth

1929-2020

Below is a photo of Barbara Jackson as she was aged seven.
