Green Group

Projects fulfill one of the main aims of our Programme Action work, namely to offer service to the local community and promote a greener and more sustainable environment. Widney Manor Station project started in March 2006 following a request from Central Trains for voluntary groups to take part in its ‘Adopt a station’ scheme. SI Solihull maintains and develops the floral displays. Contact Sue Mitchell. The Green Group also support

Elizabeth House in Shirley by maintaining the extensive grounds with regular “Dig and Doughnut” sessions!

Most members of the project have an interest in gardening, but some just wish to be involved in a project that benefits the local community. The work involves bulb and flower planting, watering and weeding, together with discussing ideas for developing floral displays. Members are encouraged to provide cuttings from their own gardens
