Lots of people don’t realise that Acocks Green has it’s very own theatre, and although it is called Hall Green Little Theatre (HGLT), it is just within the AG boundary – a hidden gem just off Fox Hollies Road. Anyway here is your chance to enjoy a night out at our local theatre for just £1 (the cost of becoming a member). HGLT is putting on a special promotion to invite local people to their theatre for a traditional pantomime of the story of Robin Hood.
Free tickets for Robin Hood this Tues, Wed & Thurs!
Lucy V commented:
I went yesterday with my son and really enjoyed it. All the children there had a great time! Really recommend going, I had never been to HGLT before but will definitely be back.
Anyone interested just needs to go along to the theatre between 7pm and 7.20pm and quote ‘Panto Promo’ to claim these FREE TICKETS. All adults will only need to pay a one pound annual membership fee and register as a member. Children under 18 go free. Note this great offer is for the Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday performances only (subject to availability).

This Sunday at 10am come along to the Community Orchard on Mallard Close for a community Bulb-Planting session.
If you have a trowel and gloves bring them along otherwise there will be some spare to borrow. The Bloom team have received funding to buy lots of bulbs to plant this autumn. Our efforts now will be enjoyed by residents and visitors to Acocks Green in the Springtime, with colourful daffodils, crocus and tulips around the village.

Full instructions will be given, with a little effort you can make a positive impact on our village.

Allotment Gardener Steve digging up potatoes with his grandaughter
Call in on Sundays
There is nothing more rewarding than eating fresh home grown food and there is an opportunity in Acocks Green to do just that.
There are vacant plots available at the local allotments. Sizes and costs vary and they are half price for Over 60s. Gardening on an allotment gives you lots of space to dedicate to growing your favourite produce and the advice and experience of other local gardeners is also close at hand. And of course, fresh air, exercise and array of healthy food! This is a good time to start an allotment so that you can prepare the land for spring planting. It might be an idea to get family and friends involved too and then you can share the rewards. If you are a new to gardening there are lots of helpful gardening books at the local libraries.
Steve Cox (pictured) is on the committee for Clay Lane & Wharf Land Allotments (just off Yardley Road and near Yardley Cemetry). He can give advice on taking a plot and organise viewings. To contact Steve by can email: firstname.lastname@example.org
