More information on upcoming events!

Hello! Update about the children's craft activity tomorrow and the event on Sat - more information is below:

You are invited to participate in the 'Stirchley Thought Exchange' on Saturday 5th June outside Coop in Stirchley (Pershore Road). There will be a range of activities that will run between 11am - 4pm:

People, Plants and Places:
Add you name and favourite plant (and why) to a Stirchley seedling and pop it on the Birmingham map - so we can trace people's favourites...

Say it with Flowers:
You will be invited to contribute to the garden of thoughts...

Plant thought exchange:
Plants rescued from Stirchley's derelict sites will be given back to the community - come and take a plant and its story - information on where it has come from and where it would like to live, but be quick, there are around 40 plants looking for new homes, and they're sure to be popular!

Plant Poetry board:
Feel inspired by the plants and their stories? Contribute to the plant poetry board...

Plant quiz:
Take a quiz sheet and try your hand at identifying parts of Stirchley by its plant life... there might be a prize in it! So be sure to enter...

Please circulate to anyone you think will be interested, and any friends and family you may have living in Stirchley.

There will also be a children's craft workshop held at Stirchley Library on Thursday 3rd June from 2pm until 3pm under the 'Say it with Flowers' theme.

I hope to see you on either tomorrow (Thursday 3rd) or Saturday 5th June

Over and out!
