The hanging baskets have arrived for 2019 – decorating 60 lamp posts in Dickens Heath. The Parish Council had hoped to extend the hanging baskets to lamp posts alongside the new developments. Unfortunately these lamp posts are not yet adopted by Solihull MBC. We asked permission of both Bellway and SMBC to use the lamp posts. We were hopeful when Bellway said yes – but this was on condition that SMBC, as the future owner of the lamp posts, also agreed. Unfortunately this has not happened in time. The additional hanging baskets have been redistributed around the village, and we hope to get the required permission in time for the solar Christmas trees.
