Swan Corner News update

IMG_20151015_195624.jpgSWCG Next MEETING Tues 10th November 7:30-8:30 pm The Billesley Pub - All welcome!

Roads resurfaced overnight

Roadwork signs joined our Swan on the roundabout as Amey completed maintenance work on the roundabout and along Brook Lane throughout October.


Billesley Fire Station cleaning up our cars


The staff at the fire station raised money for Wellchild, cleaning cars while raising awareness of common fire risks and home fire safety checks

20s plenty coming soon

City Council has confirmed Brook Lane, from Billesley Pub to Addison Road, is to be included in the Kings Heath 20mph phase 1 implemented in coming months.  Birmingham is to join a growing number of towns across UK to impose 20mph limits to whole areas of residential roads.
In London and across Europe there are extensive ‘Mini Holland’ plans to make it easier to walk and cycle more often.  Oslo will become the first major city to have an extensive car free city centre.

More community workshops with Swanshurst School - Watch this space!

Garden project sets root

2 years since the first trees were planted everything blooming and fruiting.  Cars used to park on the grass & the area became a mudbath.   The willow is well established and we will continue litterpicking and extending green and attractive areas across and beyond Swan Corner.

‘Playing Out’ set to continue

Two ‘playing out’ days ran Wheelers Lane this summer, one with Woodcraft Folk, both with Active Parks.  We continue to support this pioneering scheme bringing communities together and providing opportunities for all to play and chat outside our own houses.
