Brownhills Town Centre Partnership have been in touch, and asked me to see if anyone fancies helping out with the Britain in Bloom competition entry from our town, which involves planting, litter picking and general sprucing up.

Last year Brownhills did well: this year, let’s see if we can go one better.

Folk are always grumbling about Brownhills no longer showing any community spirit – here’s your chance to change that by participating.

Brownhills is always in need of some serious TLC, and please, if  you can, join in. All help welcome.

Volunteers are urgently needed to help prepare a town for its In Bloom campaign which starts next week.

Brownhills In Bloom competition starts in July and the District Centre Management team have issued a call out for volunteers to take part in planting, litter picking and a general tidy-up of the area on Sunday 29 June from 12pm and Monday 30 June, 10-3.

The community clean up will help the town sparkle ahead of the In Bloom judges’ visit on Thursday 3 July.

Volunteers are urged to come prepared to get their hands dirty and wear appropriate clothing and should meet the team at Ravenscourt precinct to receive their assignment.

High visibility jackets, pickers, gloves and bags will be provided.

‘This is the fifth year that Brownhills has taken part in the In Bloom campaign and requires a huge community effort which will be quite easy if everyone pulls together,’ said Cllr Adrian Andrew, portfolio holder for regeneration and transport.

‘We want to ensure the town is spick and span and weed free next week and showcases the town to a tip-top standard.’

To volunteer please call Nikki Rolls, Bloxwich & Brownhills District Regeneration Officer on 01922 654324 or email RollsN@walsall.gov.uk
