In December, the Lord Mayor and her Consort worked alongside students from Archway Academy to plant 10 new trees in Kingstone Hill Park in Bordesley. This planting is the first of several in a 3 year project Birmingham Trees for Life is undertaking as part of their work with HS2 and Groundwork. The project has received a grant from HS2’s Community Environment Fund, created to add benefit to communities along the route that are demonstrably disrupted by the construction of Phase One of HS2.
