The BirdBox has fluffed up its feathers and new signs have been installed to welcome visitors back to the town.

With the help of the Government’s Welcome Back fund, and because they needed replacing, the new signs now invite people to perch – but to do so safely. Sadly, the funky BirdBox graphics also need to be replaced due to recent vandalism.

The Birdbox was launched last year as a space to hold events from pop up restaurants and craft markets to youth festivals and multimedia evenings.

 In between lockdowns last year the space opened to support local businesses, providing seating and tables for visitors to buy food and drinks from local traders, plus pop-ups.

In between events, the all-weather seating means people can sit down and enjoy a coffee, their lunch, a book and now, since the easing of covid restrictions, meet with up to five friends!

BirdBox was delivered by North Worcestershire Economic Development and Regeneration (NWEDR) on behalf of Bromsgrove District Council.

Bromsgrove Centres Manager Simon Creed said: “I was very sad to see the vandalism caused over the past few weeks. We need to respect our town centre and its public spaces.

“Birdbox was bustling last year, and it was brilliant to see so many people enjoying themselves in the space and benefiting our local businesses who hadn’t been trading for months, at the same time.

“With our Welcome Back campaign, we want to encourage people - now more of our shops and businesses are open - to shop local and to enjoy what’s on their doorstep.

“The BirdBox is no exception and while we are quite limited on what we can do there at the moment, I am working with our events team to ensure the BirdBox flies high again soon!

“In the meantime, please continue to enjoy this wonderful space.”
