New Sundial For Stourbridge Park

A new sundial is set to be unveiled at an event at Mary Stevens Park on Monday 10th October.

The sundial, which is part of a programme of improvements at the park following a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund, was originally set in Stourbridge town centre. It became damaged and disappeared in the 1970s but has now been found and repaired.

Members of the local community, friends group and councillors will join together to see the new piece, by the cafe in the Tea Gardens, at 4:30pm and members of the public are welcome to join them.

Other recent improvements to the park include work to the park gates, war memorial, bandstand and Heath pool as well as the creation of a new cafe and toilet facilities. Councillor Hilary Bills, cabinet member for environmental services, said:

“We’re delighted to see the sundial in place and it marks a final stage in the huge programme of improvements that we’ve made at the park.”

A grant of £2.6m has come from lottery funding and the total project cost is £3.1m. A heritage ranger has been appointed to deliver a programme of activities at the park.
