Balsall Heath in Bloom
Balsall Heath has become so much cleaner and greener that residents decided to enter it in the Britain in Bloom competition. It came third, second, then first in the Midlandís Urban section, then runner up in the National Urban category.
The efforts of the Green Team are supplemented now by residents who buy plants, hanging baskets and bird houses from the Green Teamís Tree Nursery base. The effect of the team is stunning and has caused other neighbourhoods to begin to follow suit.
