Built by construction experts from BAM, the company currently finishing the first two buildings at Paradise Birmingham, the grotto sits on castors to make it easily moveable, and can fold down when required for storage.
BAM spokesperson, Toni Forbes, said: ‘Being part of the local community is an essential part of how we work, so building a Christmas grotto is a logical way for us to give something back to a community very close to the Paradise development. All of our staff and students involved are really positive about what they’ve achieved together and proud of their handiwork.’
Caroline Rudge, project director at Argent – Development Managers of Paradise Birmingham, added: ‘By working together with our construction partner BAM, we are making a difference for local children in and around Ladywood.
‘This is one of the nearest neighbourhoods to Paradise so we’re thrilled to have been able to help out Ladywood Community Project and provide them with something they can use year after year. It may still be five months until Christmas, but at least this way Ladywood will be set for an even more enjoyable festive season than usual.’
