Congratulations to the Village in Bloom team who did it again and were awarded a GOLD by the Royal Horticultural Society. Lots of hard work and support from a network of local businesses and individuals has really brightened up our Village. The RHS campaign slogan is ‘Greening Grey Britain’. This has definitely been achieved in Acocks Green.
Time is approaching for bulb-planting. Hundreds of bulbs have been purchased ready to plant in the large containers along the Warwick Road. Local people are invited to come along and help plant the bulbs to fill the village with spring colours – a mass of narcissi daffodils and colourful tulips. The team would love anyone who would like to come and help plant some bulbs, young or old, to meet at the orchard in Mallard Close at 10am on the dates below. Equipment will be provided, but if you have trowels and gardening gloves bring them along. Then when springtime comes along you can feel you have helped brighten up our village and played a part in the success of Village in Bloom!
Sunday 16th October 10am – Narcissi bulb-planting
Sunday 10th November 10am – Tulip bulb-planting
