This former community garden site located behind Grosvenor Avenue, Westminster Road and Hutton Road is to receive £15,000 in funding as part of the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) Pocket Parks initiative.
It is one of just six sites in Birmingham to receive the funding and is a partnership involving Birchfield Big Local, The Conservation Volunteers (TCV), ATHAC CIC and Groundwork West Midlands. The funding will enable the landscaping of the green space including building new raised beds and a seating area; the introduction of elements for natural play; secure storage for children’s play equipment; a mural project; and repairs to the hard standing area for ball games.
With support from TCV we are organising regular volunteer sessions every Monday, 12 – 3pm, to carry out practical activities on site.
At the first session held on Monday 22nd February, volunteers removed the remaining fly-tipping to a skip and started work dismantling the old raised beds. Please join us if you would like lend a hand.
We would recommend using the Hutton Road entrance, but there are also entrances on Westminster Road and Grosvenor Avenue.
