A big thank you from the Bournville Village Festival organisers

The Bournville Village Council would like to thank everyone, especially all of our volunteers, who helped make this year's Bournville Village Festival so enjoyable. It was a wonderful day, rewarded with large crowds basking in the good weather.

Many visitors considered the Maypole dancing, by all of the children, to be the highlight of the day. A special thank you to Sue and Olivia Walsh, the maypole teachers, for all of the months of hard work needed to make such a marvellous spectacle so successful on the day.

We look forward to seeing you all again at the 2018 Bournville Village Festival.

Bournville Green phone boxes get a long overdue lick of paint

Bournville residents were pleased to see that the pair of grade II listed phone boxes on the Bournville Green are in the process of being repainted.

There has been some concern that these and other heritage furniture items around the village were being neglected.

The phone boxes are grade II listed being K6 Telephone Kiosks designed by the renowned Sir Giles Gilbert Scott in 1935.

We understand that the work is being undertaken by BVT although it will be re billed back to BT who actually own the boxes.
