The Lib Dem team are campaigning to replace the plaque marking the opening of Adswood’s Daisyfields estate.

The brass plaque on a concrete base was erected in a quiet corner of the estate to mark the opening of the development back in 1991, with a government minister even attending the official opening.

Local residents contacted Ann about helping to trim the shrubs by the plaque. As Ann inspected the site it became apparent the plaque had been vandalised and the metal part stolen.

Now Ann is campaigning for a new plaque to be installed on the site. “The plaque commemorated a new beginning for the residents that moved into the area, many of whom are still here,” she said.

“We are exploring the possibility of replacing the plaque with a non metal version, as a two-fingered salute to the metal thieves operating in the area.”
