Fresh flowers installed to brighten up Redditch Crematorium

Redditch Editorial 10th Jun, 2024   0

REDDITCH Crematorium has been brightened up with new floral displays thanks to sponsorship by a Studley business.

Thomas Brothers Funeral Directors have teamed up with Where Next, a charity that supports adults with learning disabilities to create seven new hanging baskets and plant out tubs with summer bedding.

The project replaces plastic hanging baskets that have been in situ for the last few years.

Where Next, which celebrates its fortieth anniversary this year, runs a plant nursery in Redditch on Easemore Road and a garden centre in Studley.

The charity staff with the help of individuals it supports have grown and planted all the floral displays.

Simon Thomas, director of Thomas Brothers said: “We thought that the crematorium needed to look welcoming for families and friends for their loved ones’ final journey.

He told the Standard that it had been a pleasure working with Where Next and that it was a “good charity to support.”

Leader of Redditch Borough Council, Councillor Joe Baker attended the presentation of hanging baskets on Wednesday (June 5) and gave his thanks on behalf of the council which owns the site.
