Well done to the dedicated team of volunteers who have worked hard all year to make the village look lovely with freshly sanded and varnished benches, colourful planters, community projects, amazing flower beds and so much more. The judges were again impressed by the variety of improvements and community engagements the team had achieved. This is an excerpt from the RHS judges comments:
The team do an outstanding job with tremendous support from local residents, schools, businesses (large and small!) Community groups and Birmingham City Council. With events and initiatives throughout the year the Bloom campaign makes a real difference with everyone pulling together to brighten up the Village.
Just a few photos that highlight some of the work achieved over the summer. Hover over the photos to read more about the work.
So WELL DONE once again to our volunteers. If you are interested in helping Village in Bloom in someway there are lots of ways to do this from digging, making donations, painting, litter-picking, watering and tidying up beds/planters. To find out more come along and chat to us or contact the co-ordinator :
