    Goldsmith Road in Kings Heath has a community gardening project called ‘Goldfingers’ and last year we entered the ‘Its Your Neighbourhood’ scheme supported by Britain in Bloom. We were awarded a level 4 (top level is level 5) for our gardening project involving residents and nearby schools.
    We have created a small community garden, have put planters on railings and given planted up pots to residents.
    Our efforts have been greatly appreciated, enhanced our road and contributed to a better environment.
    We would like to extend our project by having a small edible community garden, provide residents with hanging baskets and having small areas for the community to sit and enjoy more plants.
    We would greatly appreciate, and acknowledge, any help you can give via your grant awards.
    Thanking you in anticipation.

  • Hi I would like some further information about applying for a grant to help run a local carers group in the area.

    The cares group will be bases in stechford and it helps the community going through difficult times it would provide a chance to take the Group on trips help develop the local area.
