Operation Peacebulb

Operation Peacebulb took place today at Brookvale Park, and Rosary Road and Area Residents Association were out to show support and engage with the community.

Operation Peacebulb was a world record attempt organised by West Midlands Police, complete with an adjudicator from Guinness World Records on site. The record involved 850 people planting 3000 bulbs in the park, with the outcome of creating a garden memorial - the only Remembrance memorial in Stockland Green.

The masses line up to get planting their bulbs!
Also at the event were the Anglo-Boer War Staffords, a living history group who fired rifles and a cannon for display.
