Grant for Dartmouth Park Volunteer Gardeners


Super-keen community volunteer gardeners are helping to put more colour into the flower beds at Dartmouth Park in West Bromwich.

The group, which was established 10 years ago along with the Friends of Dartmouth Park, is made up of 12 volunteers who give their time on a weekly basis to help look after the flower beds

Sue Slater, one of the volunteers, said: “Tending to the flower beds is our way of putting something back into the community. We take great pleasure in making them look lovely for the local community and visitors to enjoy.

“To help us with our work, we received a town grant of £446.40 from Sandwell Council to help replace plants and tools such as forks, secateurs and loppers.”

Dartmouth Park is one of Sandwell’s Green Flag-awarded parks and is visited by many people throughout the year.

Councillor Shirley Hosell, town chair for West Bromwich, said: “It is wonderful that these keen volunteers go along every week to the park to help to make it more colourful and interesting for the visitors. They do such a good job for the town and we were pleased to award them a town grant for plants and tools.”
