Flowers and friendships bloom as neighbours in Shirley come together to create garden displays for their new homes

Residents at two new neighbouring housing developments in Shirley got together to create hanging baskets at a social event organised by Bellway.

The housebuilder invited neighbours from its Lucas Green site and the Lucas Gardens development next door – which is being built under Bellway’s Ashberry Homes brand – to join its Blossoming Neighbours event.

Around 30 people came to the occasion, which was hosted across the two developments, both of which are located off Dog Kennel Lane.

Those who took part were able to create sunflower displays for their gardens in the form of hanging baskets and filled troughs. 

Bellway West Midlands Sales Director Marie Richards said: “It makes it so much easier to get talking to people if you’re enjoying a cuppa and some cake and taking part in a lovely activity like this.

“We like to enable our residents to get to know each other and I think those who came along to our Blossoming Neighbours event thoroughly enjoyed chatting and making connections.

“They also created some stunning flower displays which will be a great feature outside their homes this summer.”
