Lodge Ramp- flower beds.

Those of you that visit the cemetery often may have noticed that the 2 flower beds adjacent to the Lodge were historically refreshed twice a year by Birmingham Parks and Nursery with plants. Pre-covid this practice stopped as part of funding cuts and the Friends have tried to take on planting in this area, but manpower and cost has made it impossible for us, so with help from Greg and Sarah of Valley Contractors,  who kindly donated some turf, we will be able to extend the grass area and get rid of this weed ridden patch.

We have also recently installed 3 planters and we are lucky to have ‘screen wall curtains’  that change with the seasons and are crocheted by a lovely local team. They both require less maintenance by the Friends !
