New magnificent magnolia trees in Filwood Broadway.

Filwood Broadway welcomes two new trees to its growing plant life.

Knowle West’s local Tree Champion and resident, Jim Smith took the opportunity to have two new magnolia trees paid for by the small grants that have been awarded to local groups and organisations; by Knowle West Alliance.

Submitting a bid to have more tree’s planted on the Broadway green (opposite Filwood Community Centre), he successfully secured the £100 grant and the trees were planted by the One Tree Per Child group initiative, who are part of Bristol City Council.

Jim Smith said, “Go and see them during your healthy walking session. See if you can identify them by name? Take photographs. I will label them in due course and you can return to see if you were correct!”

The two additional Magnolia trees have joins the existing three Tulip trees, three Silver Birch and single Magnolia, bringing the total Magnolia trees to three.
