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.

Fond memories of this year's Bournville Village Festival

The Carillon Shop is ready for Christmas

The Rest House on the Bournville Green, home to the Carillon Gift Shop, has been beautifully decorated and is ready for Christmas shoppers.

It is one of the most delightful shops to visit in Bournville at any time of the year but at Christmas it is simply a unique experience that must not be missed. There are a huge range of Christmas gifts available inside and all profits go towards maintaining the historic Bournville Carillon.

Redeveloped BVT offices to be called Elizabeth Court

The redeveloped BVT offices located on Oak Tree Lane, are to be called Elizabeth Court in honour of George Cadbury's widow, Dame Elizabeth Cadbury.

The development is currently under construction, and will provide 21 apartments for the over 60s,

Although a much larger building than the one it replaces, the new development still retains the original frontage of the building and the new large structure at the rear of the frontage has been designed in a fairly complementary style.
