We are planning to plant bulbs in the grass verges along all the main road entrances into Knowle to provide a colourful and welcoming scene every spring. Our vision is that, by extensive planting of spring flowering bulbs we will create an impressive and beautiful annual display lasting several months.
The proposal is, that over a four-year period, all five of the main entrances to Knowle, will be planted with a mixture of snowdrops, crocuses and daffodils.
We ask you to support this ambitious project to enhance our beautiful village. We are very fortunate, as Amey, main contractor to Solihull Council, has offered to undertake the necessary groundwork free of charge. However, we do need donations to cover the purchasing of the bulbs.
We have estimated that the cost of purchasing the bulbs required to complete the four year project will be approximately £15,000, £3,500 each year.
All donors will, unless they request otherwise, be acknowledged in the Knowle Society Newsletter. If you would like to donate in memory of a loved one, we can include their name. We can accept donations by cheque, by bank transfer, online or by cash.
