Have you seen the beautiful array of tulips around the village? Definitely the best display ever. Thanks to the Village in Bloom Team and all the volunteers who came along in November and helped plant them. It was worth the effort. Why not do a tulip trail to see them all? If you click on the pictures it will tell you where they are. Catch them before they’re gone!

Canals & River Trust sent their litter-picking boat along our patch on Wednesday. Also we had around 20 volunteers out on Sunday for our clean up including 3 very helpful guys from Shirley Sea Cadets in their kayaks.
The Litter Picking Team from Canals and Rivers Trust – Wednesday 25th April.
We picked up lots of litter, pulled out junk from the canal bed and sowed wild flower seeds. The Canals Trust barge were continuing up the canal towards Birmingham and were hoping to remove the sofa that had been dumped from the shores of the Millennium Green. Unfortunately keeping the canals clean is a full time job because of some people’s irresponsible disposal of rubbish.
Thanks to all the local people who help in improving our environment and dispose of rubbish responsibly!
