Please help Brownhills bloom – tomorrow!

Sorry folks, this event has been cancelled due to late arrival of the plants! Please see this post. Planting now scheduled to take place on the Monday 13th June 2016 instead.

So sorry


Brownhills has had excellent flowers for a few years now – mostly maintained by volunteers. Image from Brownhills Town Centre Partnership.

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

In previous years Brownhills has done  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.

On Thursday 2nd June 2016 starting at 10am in Brownhills Activity Centre we will be planting up all the High Street.

Then on Wednesday 8th June 2016  Brownhills clean up phase two  takes place,  starting at 9am on Tesco Car park.

High visibility jackets, pickers, tools, gloves and bags will be provided – all we need is volunteers!

‘This is the sixth year that Brownhills has taken part in the In Bloom campaign and requires a huge community effort.

To volunteer please call Diane Mansell from the Brownhills Town Centre Partnership by sending her a Facebook private message on this page or email
