An avenue of blossom trees will be planted at Memorial Park to commemorate the centenary anniversary of the First World War.
Members of the Friends of Memorial Park (FoMP) group have agreed to embark upon the project following a public open meeting.
Chairman Ian Wilkinson said: “The council are fully supportive of the idea. The area chosen was an overgrown stretch of border below the Round wood.
“During September, members of the parks and open spaces department kindly agreed to clear this area of the old trees and shrubs.”
Ian said 11 new cherry blossom trees were due to be installed.
He said: “It was felt that 11 was a significant number as it linked with November and 11am.
“The group sought out a suitable piece of stone, similar in size and shape to the existing one laid at the park entrance, to accommodate a dedication plaque for Blossom Avenue.
“Thanks to a local company, SB Tippers LTD, such a stone was located in the town.
“The company kindly donated the stone and agreed to transport it to its new home in the park. The wording for the plaque has yet to be decided.”
Ian added: “The committee will also consider an appropriate commemorative act once the project is complete.”
The Observer reported last month how Memorial Park will be protected as part of a Government Centenary Fields scheme to mark the First World War and create a living legacy.
