A new £660,000 village square has been completed in Birmingham.

The Kings Heath village square has been built using a £430,000 grant from the Big Lottery's Community Spaces Fund and money from Birmingham City Council and Kings Heath Centre Partnership.

Vivien Thickett, of the All Saints Community Development Company, said: "We now have a beautiful square for all members of the community to enjoy."

The Lord Mayor and the Bishop of Birmingham will carry out the opening.

The ceremony is to take place at 10:00 BST.

Wendy Jenkins, programmes director at Groundwork UK, which manages Community Spaces, said: "The Kings Heath village square is one our flagship projects and I am delighted to see how the vision of the local community has become a reality."
