Memorial Rose Garden to Mark Queen’s Diamond Jubilee

A new rose garden is to be created in Tamworth’s Castle Grounds in honour of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

The garden, which will be shaped like a crown and will feature walkways, seating in the centre and 200 red rose bushes, will act as a permanent memorial of the Jubilee celebrations.

Work will start on the new garden, next to the Bowling Green in the Castle Grounds in February, with 200 red Heart of England rose bushes being planted in March in order for them to be in full bloom in time for the Diamond Jubilee celebrations at the start of June.

Cllr John Garner, Cabinet member for the Environment, said, “The Diamond Jubilee of Her Majesty the Queen is a historic occasion and here in Tamworth, we want to create something which will be a permanent memorial and which will be open to the whole community.

“The rose garden is the perfect tribute to the dedication our Queen has given to her country and her people.  I believe that this tribute will be welcomed by the people of Tamworth as they join in the celebrations of the special event.”

A major sponsor is now being sought for the rose garden.  It will be a unique opportunity for a business in Tamworth to lend their financial support to a high-profile project which will be a lasting memorial for future generations.

Businesses interested in sponsoring the Diamond Jubilee rose garden are asked to contact Tamworth Borough Council’s Environmental Management department on 01827 709445 or email

    if you want a President you’re more than welcome to move to Ireland or France.

    As for the memorial garden, there is no extra cost as this is part of the annual Tamworth in Bloom budget
