A BURST of colour has helped brighten up Church Hill shopping centre thanks to the efforts of hardworking residents.

Church Hill Big Local Partnership recently held a litter pick as well as re-planning of the flower boxes and the grounds around the shopping centre.

A number of councillor attended, including Redditch Council leader Bill Hartnett.

"We had a good turnout of local residents of all ages," he said.

"I was very pleased to see so many people join in. We had lots of positive comments from residents who were shopping at the centre, which now looks very colourful."

Church Hill Big Local Partnership project is about bringing together all the local talent, ambitions, skills and energy from individuals, groups and organisations who want to make their area an even better place to live.
