Bordesley’s creative side


Bordesley is fighting back to demonstrate that it is a residential area that really matters to the people who live there.
They were stung into action by comments from a representative of Worcestershire County Council at a planning meeting that their hamlet was viewed as a “non-residential area” in a debate about construction traffic using the A441
The newly formed Bordesley Matters group decided that community events were the best way to show that they are indeed a community.
In a first, they held a “dress your driveway” for Easter event, which was a great success, drawing in visitors from across the parish.
Many residents took part in the competition, with creative displays and homemade decorations from balloons to papier mache eggs and MDF rabbits … to carrots made from carpet underlay! The competition was judged by Alvechurch parish councillor John Cypher, Bromsgrove district councillor Annette English, and Sharon Betts from Redditch Skip Hire, who donated two skips for the winner.
While the skips were a big draw for the adults, a prize of a giant Easter egg inspired the children.
The winners were Pat and Trevor Yarnold (pictured above receiving their prizes from Sharon Betts, centre) with a display inspired by the NHS.
Pictures of the winning entry and runners-up are below.
