So many people in our area are fed up of the litter and want to do something about it. We have the scouts, schools and Friends of the Parks doing organised litter picks over the weekend 2-4th March.
The Neighbourhood Forum has organised a litter pick for Yardley Road and the roads off Yardley Road – here is your chance to work with your neighbourhood to clean it up. Together we can make a difference!

Keep Britain Tidy are encouraging communities to take part in a Big Clean Up on the weekend of 2nd to 4th March 2018.
The keen people of Acocks Green are coming together with the backing of Village in Bloom to organise a mass tidy up. Working with schools, scouts and the The Friends of Acocks Green Recreation Ground together we hope to make a difference.
Here is you opportunity to help too! On Sunday 4th of March the Village in Bloom Team will meet at 10am at the corner of Woodcock Lane/Warwick Road to tidy up the side streets of AG. If you would like to do your own litter picking in your road then the team can lend litter-picking sticks on a long-term basis as well as a supply of special bags that the council recognise
and will collect from designated collection points. So come and play your part and let’s show people we want to clean up Acocks Green!
Two activities coming up this month that are free and fun for the over 50s in Acocks Green. Don’t miss this opportunity to meet some new people and enjoy sharing stories.
Firstly the Heritage of Play Workshops on Wed 21st Feb and if you scroll down you will see the Pamper Morning/lunch at the Westley Hotel on Wed 28th Feb. All details you need are included.
From all accounts a very enjoyable afternoon. No partners required, everyone in the local area welcome.
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!
