A BAR in Worcester is set to open the first roof terrace garden in the city centre in recent years, beating a popular eatery to the mark.The roof terrace at the Conservatory in Friar Street, Worcester could open by the middle of this month as the popular bar gets out of the starting blocks before gourmet burger and cocktail bar Hanbao, which has a similar scheme in the pipeline.The dedication in the cathedral's Lady Arbour will take place on April 13 while the Weeping Window display of poppies is in situ on the cathedral. The community was obviously hugely saddened by the event and Broad Street was crowded with mourners when the funerals of five of the girls took place in Hereford Cathedral on April 13, 1916.
With the support of the First World War Committee a plaque has now been made and placed in the Lady Arbour."After all these years, how right it is to offer sadness, gratitude and remembrance and still to say 'May they rest in peace and rise in glory'," Mr Tavinor said.The plaque will be dedicated during a short service in the cathedral at 10.30am on the anniversary of the funerals and all are welcome to attend.The terrace, which had previously been used for storage at the manager's flat, did not require planning permission or any changes to the licensing arrangements. The bar already has a smaller, outdoor courtyard garden directly beneath one side of the rooftop garden.Work on the project was delayed by the adverse weather Worcester has experienced, including rain and snow, in recent weeks.People can either view the various blossoms from their cars in their own time and at their own pace, or get a bit closer to nature by jumping in the saddle and pedalling their way around sections of the route.
