Parks staff were busily planting geraniums around the perimeter of the Lodge to brighten up the beds. Along with every gardener they are finding that all their bedding plants are late this year but hopefully they will create a splash of colour in the next few weeks.
The Friends of Brandwood End Cemetery sponsored a ‘paver’ at All Saints/Kings Heath Village Square but were dismayed to find that there was a spelling error within the inscription.
Thank you All Saints!
As those of you who use Brandwood End Cemetery regularly will know, making an exit via the Broad Lane gate often means taking your life in your hands. As you exit the cemetery you are obscured by hedge row and then immediately on the road with no pavement.This meant that speeding traffic approaching from the right had no way of knowing you were there!
After discussions with local Councillors and Bereavements department we are pleased to say that the ‘road’ side of the gate on Broad Lane has now been marked with white lines to highlight the exit from the main gate and also the Jewish gate to road users.
Thank you to our members that drew this to our attention and the Councillors and Birmingham City Council Bereavements department for supporting our request.
