Raised flower beds need attention

Two raised planters look to be in a terrible state. There are no plants in them at all, just weeds. New plants need planting.

Also, the raised planters aren't in great shape. At minimum they need repainting and ideally replaced.

Look forward to hearing from you.

  • Readers may be interested to hear that there are plans to refurbish and replant the various long-neglected flower planters in Hall Green this summer, as a result of successful bids from local voluntary groups for funding from a pot of POCA (Proceeds Of Crime Act) money that the authorities have recovered from criminals. The grants have been fairly small, so will not cover replacement of all the dilapidated wooden planters, but one new one has been provided outside Hall Green Library, others are being repaired, and the two concrete planters outside the shops in Baldwins Lane and two of the three near the Poundstretcher supermarket on Stratford Road have been tidied up and replanted already, with help from various volunteers. Work has now begun to tidy up and replant the two planters reported above anonymously, as well as the one on the other side of the road, near the junction with Ingestre Road (this one needs repair, not just replanting though) - see photos, taken between 20.23 and 21.31 on 7 June 2019.

  • Council emailed me a picture of a road junction??? Saying they couldn't find planters. They literally can't read the log correctly that shows latitude and longitude position.
