Christmas Prediction

imageTradition of the Planning Committe’s new Chairman Cllr. MIke Sharpe, that we should all ride on the German Market carousel at the last meeting of the year. I must have been asked for my prediction of the New Year Aston Villa result. Very prescient – 5 Nil !

Father Christmas

imageFC visited Castlecroft (above) and spoke to all residents who were available on the three floors, with some “Celebrations” that his elves had wrapped earlier. However when he visited Weoley Castle with “Roses” he was too early at 10:00 and needs to time it later next year. The Children do not seem to have gone shopping that time!! The Cadbury connection is very strong, and one resident said he had been packing these sweets last night and could show the elves a thing or two! Many congratulations to the Rev. Fiona Harrison-Smith and friends for their hard work in cooking the cakes that were handed round the square. The community is well served by such helpful and hardworking spiritual leaders. The future for Weoley is bright!

British Middleweight Champion

imageShopping in Weoley Castle – the British Middleweight Boxing Champion Tommy Landgford, with his son Freddie, a lovely lad, and his beautiful wife Leanne (who was taking the picture). He had done a sports degree at Birmingham University, and she is a qualified nurse, so they are very welcome here. I hope he will be successful in his quest to reach higher in his boxing career. He had heard of (my) miserable attempts at Milling, which is more than recompense for the pain received!!

Shencare Trustees

imageHere are the trustees of Shencare Community Transport meeting at Castlecroft Residential Home in Weoley Castle next to Our Lady and St.Rose  of Lima Church. A good meeting, but with much work to be done about the threat to Community Transport and its charitable works from the interpretation of European Community legislation by the bureaucrats in the department of Transport.

Visit to London Assembly

imageWhat a place to work – tower bridge to the east, the tower opposite, HMS Belfast to the west, and the Thames with all its traffic in front. However we were there to ask about the scrutiny function of the LA which is what the WMCA (West Midlands combined authority) will have to perform. It is the only body that can scrutinise the Mayoral functions, and that will be desperately needed especially when in the future (which we can never forsee accurately) there may be a Mayor without the high moral principles of the capable, and honest Mr. Andy Street!

HLF visit Moseley Art School

imageHLF Staff visit Moseley Art School. Ask for more information and planning. Successful visit, and means the project is on target. It is a wonderful community asset, and future generations will be grateful for the immense efforts made by Mr. Javed  Arain and his colleagues in the Moseley Muslim Association.
