Final reminder that we will be holding a family event to launch the above Heritage Lottery funded project this Saturday between 2-4pm in the Cemetery. Join Birmingham and Black Country Wildlife Trust and the Park Rangers in Hedgehog related activities.
Our thanks to the 5 volunteers that turned out to our most recent litter pick in very damp conditions (turning to heavy rain!) Never the less, 6 bags of litter were collected- mainly flower papers.
Whilst litter picking we encounter many artificial bouquets of flowers that have blown off graves and lie abandoned on grassed areas. We place these back on ‘nearby’ graves, but they may not be the correct ones- so our apologies if your artificial flowers appear to have moved elsewhere. We have no way of knowing where they have blown from and if not removed from the grass, they will be shredded by the large grass cutting machines and create not only an unsightly mess but a hazard to wildlife. If you leave artificial flowers at a grave site please ensure they are secured. Thank you.
