Bring back ‘Rose’, says councillor

Posted on January 29 2020 at 3:46:54


District and county councillor Peter McDonald is hoping to reinstate the child-shaped bollard outside Lickey Hills Primary School after it was removed by the county.

Nicknamed”Rose Hill” by residents, the bollard was installed in spring 2017 in a bid to slow traffic and deter pavement parking outside the school, and had become something of a local landmark, occasionally dressed in various accessories by local wags.

Coun McDonald said that he had prevented the county council from removing similar bollards from other locations (the one outside St Andrew’s School in Barnt Green remains in situ at the time of writing) and was working to bring “Rose” back.
