MORE THAN 50 people got their hands dirty and helped spruce up Elmdon Park.

Church members from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, in Chelmsley Wood and Solihull joined forces with Solihull Council’s Love Solihull initiative and Warwickshire Wildlife Trust to give the park a sought-after make-over.

Volunteers aged from two to 77 were involved in clearing trees, plants and weeds, repainting park benches, clearing and sawing fallen tree branches, litter picking, and creating an environmental habitats to attract wildlife including hedgehogs.

Coun Tony Dicicco, Cabinet Member for Environment, Housing and Regeneration said: “It is always great to see members of our community coming together to improve the look of their area.

“I hope the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Solihull area will be an inspiration to get outside and make a difference in the borough.”
