Wednesfield Aces have always valued their Club members but sadly over the years we have lost many of them, their names are recorded in the Clubhouse along with the rest of the history of the Club, but now we have gone one step further in developing a “Remembrance Garden” this consists of a memorial bench and flower garden along with a centre piece flagpole unveiling an historic flag in colours dating back to when the club was founded in 1962.
The garden will be located in a quiet corner of the track enclosure, our lost member’s names have been engraved on a plaque and placed in this area. It will be a place of memories and reflection and a chance to remember some wonderful people.
We are sure the cycle speedway community will celebrate these Club stalwarts, and we are hoping that the local vicar will come and dedicate and bless this area and of course we want to welcome relatives to relive memories of the people we are honouring. Over sixty relatives have confirmed attendance on Sunday so we are sure it will be an occasion for all to share memories of their loved ones.
The garden also coincides with the Wednesfield Britain in Bloom campaign, the club volunteers have been busy developing the garden to be part of the Ashmore Park community entry.
The dedication of the Remembrance Garden will be on Sunday 30th June at 12 midday, the Club is racing Poole on that day in the cross over league and the cycle speedway racing will start at 2 pm.
