However we are already planning for next year so please visit our website regularly for updates times etc.

We live in Kings Heath, a suburban village some 3 miles south of Birmingham city centre. My work and hobby interests revolve around gardening and over the years this has widened as I use my love of photography and computers to compile and present many fascinating lectures about diverse and general aspects of gardening using the latest digital technology.

I also works closely with Ashwood Nurseries running winter lectures and day trips. From time to time I also organise garden holidays ranging from a long weekend in the UK to as much as a month visiting New Zealand. I also help with ExtraCare Charitable Trust running their Gardening Showcase competition and you can find out much more under News and Media, under the same heading there are also links to some of my other media activities in recent years such as the Black Country Bugle and provide freelance copy as requested for other magazines such as Amateur Gardening who recently requested copy about Growing Hellebores.

We both try to participate in village life. 

I sit on Kings Heath Residents Forum, a non political group that sits as a committee once a month with several open public meetings each year to raise awareness of issuses affecting Kings Heath.  The aim of this section is to bring you all the latest news about kings heath complete with links to the Residents Forum Website and other links of interest about our area. I will add more as news becomes available but we are working on the following issues

Road Safety and 20mph zones

New plans for parliamentary boundary changes
