Bittell Road Playing Field – Trim Trail Installation

In conjunction with Bromsgrove District Council, Barnt Green Parish Council has instructed contractors to carryout improvements to Bittell Road Playing Field.

Work will commence today with the existing gravel track being removed and replaced with a new wider path to accommodate wheelchairs and pushchairs and finished in black top.

The path will be extended in front of the wooded area to create a circular route measuring 500m to form a trim trail exercise route.

The basketball square will also be extended to improve the surface for users.

This first phase of work will take approximately three weeks to complete and should be ready for use by the end of June.

The second phase of the works will see a suite of adult use outdoor gym equipment being installed in order that visitors can get a free multi-fitness experience mixing a circuits routine with a trim trail sprint.

It is hoped that the project will be completed by late autumn.

Hewell Road Pollinator Site – Volunteers Required

Work has been completed on the installation of the low level rustic barrier to the perimeter of the site with an interpretation panel also erected to inform passers by of the importance of pollinating sites in urban areas.

I hope you agree that it has really gives the area an identity and a sense of purpose?

The parish council is looking to expand and develop further community pollinating sites within the village and would like to hear from anyone who has an interest in gardening and could spare a few hours on planting projects within the community.

The council is looking to form a bank of volunteers and with the proviso of the relaxation of the current social distancing and lockdown measures, it hopes to hold volunteer planting sessions in the late summer/early autumn.

Whether you’re a seasoned gardener, just starting out or would just like to mix with your fellow villagers, all will be welcome and refreshments will be provided.

If you would like to place your name on the volunteers register, sign up to the volunteering policy and get involved, please contact the Executive Officer, Tracy Bodley via email at
