Lions support colourful village

Knowle and Dorridge Lions have agreed to support, for four years, the Bulb Planting Programme organised by Knowle Society. This ambitious project involves the planting of large numbers of daffodil and crocus bulbs along the major roads into Knowle.

The first phase commenced on Tuesday 20 October with thousands of bulbs being planted on the verges of the Warwick Road, either side of the Wychwood island. Volunteers from Knowle Society were helped by pupils from Knowle C of E Primary Academy and also the local Rainbows group. The next three phases will take place in each of the succeeding years.

We are delighted to be involved and associated with such a scheme and it will bring a lot of pleasure to the inhabitants and add colour to the village”.
