Wylde Green in Bloom
As you may remember in previous years, the High Street in Wylde Green greeted visitors with a glorious display of hanging baskets and planters that adorned the railings and street lamps. The beautiful addition of these plants and flowers lifted everybody’s mood and attracted more visitors to the area, benefiting the local traders and their businesses.
In 2014, funding from Birmingham City Council was cut allowing only a few hanging baskets and no planters at all. In 2015, we have to secure hanging baskets, but reduced in numbers and again, no planters. We fear for the impact this will have on businesses with less footfall and positive feeling having a devastating effect on our high street and our community.
We hope that you can contribute a small donation towards the improvement of your local area. We appreciate all our financial constraints at the moment and the difficult times we are all in. However, we believe that this small investment will help improve the area.
