MARIE Curie gardeners have been spreading some spring cheer at the new hospice.

Some of the nine strong team of volunteer gardeners at the newly opened Marie Curie Hospice in Solihull have marked the official first week of spring by planting spring flowers – primroses, snow drops and daffodils - by the gate leading to the new facility.

Leader of the voluntary group Barbara Baker said: “Twelve years ago at this time we planted the same flowers to mark the opening of the new garden at the old hospice on Warwick Road, Solihull.

“So it’s a nice symmetry that we are here again outside our new hospice in Marsh Lane planting some primroses, daffodils and snowdrops that we brought with us from the old hospice.

“We hope they will bring some spring cheer to people arriving here for many years to come.”
