Chris Bavin meets the residents and shop owners of Soho Road, a busy route into Birmingham, who are entering into the Business Improvement category for the first time.
Chris Bavin travels to Birmingham to meet the business owners and residents of Soho Road, a busy route into the city, who are entering Bloom this year under the Business Improvement District category. Soho Road is a diverse area with anti-social issues - 600 businesses along the road are working with the council to improve trade and make the area safer and greener. Firstly, the local secondary school pupils are working to create a relaxation garden in an abandoned play area at the back of the school. Next, the Sikh community brighten their Temple campus with a show-stopping floral display. Finally, the whole community needs to step up to plant thousands of flowers along the entire length of the mile-long street. They hope all of this will be enough to win them a gold award on judging day.
