For a while now the plinth used by families to feed the ducks at Brandwood Pool has been rotten and not really safe but we are pleased to say it is back in use again. Dean, the Ranger, helped by Wendy and her team of students from Bournville College have redesigned the base and removed all that wood and replaced it with hard core. Lots of baby moor hens, coots and ducks to feed. Keep your eyes peeled for our daily Woodpecker visitor. He likes the large Oak on the far side of the pool.
Brandwood Pool lies adjacent to the Cemetery but walking access is via Whittington Close B14 6JW.
The Friends are always looking for help at work parties and litter picks. They can be contacted on 0121 605 4316.

Our thanks to all those who attended our AGM at St Bedes Church. We didnt have a large turn out but those that attended all participated in informal discussions after the AGM on a range of subjects. Thanks again for taking the time to come and sharing your thoughts with us. We will be posting a copy of the our accounts, and a list of Officers, on this site following our next meeting at the start of May.
Doesn’t it make you feel like spring is here. First we had all the snowdrops, then the crocus bulbs popped through. Now we have a couple of patches of beautiful Anemones. Not as many as last year but never the less welcome.
