Our local theatre company have been rehearsing long and tirelessly for their winter production Little Red Riding Hood. It promises to be up to their usual standard of laughs and mayhem that the whole family can enjoy! You can book tickets on line at their website: Stage 27 where there’s lots more information. A great way to say goodbye to the January Blues!

This month at the Queen’s Birthday Honours – our chair David Treadwell was invited to Buckingham Palace to receive an MBE for his tireless community work. We are very proud of him. He does so much for Acocks Green as well as his work with the Scouts, the Rugby Club and much more. Acocks Green would be a much poorer place without his hard work and dedication. Thank you Dave!

Exciting News! Following the sell-out success of last year’s Acocks Green Calendar, Village in Bloom have produced a new calendar for 2018. It is a wall calendar and each page features a contemporary colour photos of some of the scenic views around Acocks Green. It lists all the public holidays and other significant dates (including full moons) and has space to write your important appointments.
The calendars are available now at Beads and Bobbins, Station Road, S & H Jewellers, Swan Trio, Hughes Fruits on Warwick Road and everyone’s favourite hardware store – Jeffries – just £6.50 each. Get them while stocks last.
All proceeds of the sale of the calendars goes to Village in Bloom and the work that they do to enhance our area, so what an ideal way to support the project and do a bit of Christmas shopping at the same time.
This year the team also put a call out to local people to submit their favourite photos of the area for inclusion in the calendar :
“A great big thank you goes out to all those people who sent in photos! It is so good to see that people are proud of our village and want to capture it. We received over 100 photos and have selected 4 for inclusion in this year’s calendar. It was a really hard decision to choose the most appropriate pictures but we are sure you will like the final result”. The Village in Bloom Team
