Blooming marvellous: another gong for Kings Heath Village Square

more Kings Heath local news

The landscaped square at the heart of Kings Heath town centre has again won top marks as part of the Britain in Bloom competition.

Kings Heath Village Square was classed as 'outstanding' – the top mark in the regional Heart of England contest. Judges particularly praised the work of community volunteers and the way they were passing on gardening skills to local youngsters, improving their prospects for employment.

“The up-skilling of local young people by the gardening volunteers allows them to work and
learn,” said judge Trish Willetts. She added the experience was furnishing the youngsters with references and evidence for their CVs to present to employers.

Judges also praised the new composting area, the range of local events taking place on the square and the way the different teams involved all support each other.

Kings Heath Village Square was entered into the 'It's Your Neighbourhood' section of the competition, overseen by the Royal Horticultural Society.
