NEWPORT ROAD IS A NEAT NEIGHBOURHOOD!

Over the past few weeks the Neighbourhood Innovator has been supporting residents in North Moseley around Newport road to form a residents group.

The first thing this group wanted to do was organise a community clear up and yesterday, on one of the sunniest days so far, that’s exactly what they did!

The group is also going to be supported by Moseley in Bloom and Moseley and Kings Heath Shed to build, plant and maintain some attractive wooden planters and then enter into the Britain in Bloom ‘It’s your Neighbourhood’ scheme!  Well done Newport Road Residents!

Here are some pictures of the road before the group got started!

VOLUNTEERS WANTED FOR MOSELEY PROJECT

WOULD YOU LIKE TO HELP VULNERABLE PEOPLE IN MOSELEY?

Volunteer opportunities with Moseley Alternative Giving Campaign (MAGC)

The Moseley Alternative Giving Campaign was set up in response to residents’ concerns regarding homelessness, begging, and anti-social behaviour, often alcohol-related, in and around Moseley. The campaign provides a way to help people in genuine need, while also helping end incidents of intimidation or deception. We encourage residents to donate via collecting tins rather than giving directly to people asking for money on the street. The money collected is then distributed in the form of a grant, via a panel and a referral by a professional worker, to address, where possible, the immediate and, hopefully, the longer term needs of people who may find themselves on the streets, due to issues such as homelessness, alcohol or drug addiction, family problems, or mental illness.

We are looking to increase the numbers of volunteers currently working with MAGC and we are particularly looking for volunteers with any of the following experience or skills:

  • Writing &distributing press releases (computer skills and access to a computer required)
  • Delivering leaflets to shops and residential areas
  • Helping with our community market stall (last Saturday of the month)
  • Interviewing the public for research
  • Collecting and counting donations
  • Participating in the project steering group meetings
  • Experience of homelessness or of working for a support organisation.
  • Event organisation
  • Fund raising

Travel and some lunch expenses will be available.

Please contact Helen Rehman on helen.rehman@ashrammoseleyha.org.uk with a brief description of which areas you would like to volunteer in and to arrange an interview.
