You are welcome to join us for this month's online tea time social, it would be great to see you there and hear about how your Friends Group has been getting on recently! Also this is a great opportunity to speak with other groups in Birmingham and a chance to find answers to any parks and open spaces questions.
This year the Friends of Georges, Handsworth and Cotteridge parks all hosted community cinema screenings in their local open spaces.
These have been great events for the local communities and some wonderful films suitable for families have been shown. If you are interested in hosting a cinema in your park in 2022 please get in touch with email@example.com.

Birmingham Ice Age Erratic Boulders project
This project aims to engage the public with visible heritage of the Ice Age that can be seen in SW Birmingham and NE Worcestershire. These are large boulders, up to three metres across, transported by ice – hence “glacial erratics”.
The project team hope to provide an opportunity for participants to learn more about geology and the importance of the erratic boulders, to develop unique skills, and to be involved in a landmark project that will strongly benefit local communities.
The team would love to hear from anybody interested in getting involved!
If you interested in volunteering or just want to know a little more, please get in touch with the project's Volunteer Coordinator, Dr Daniel Cashmore, at email@example.com
