Venue still to be sorted out, but this will be the evening for the next Community Partnership Event.
We’ll be taking forward all of the key points which you raised at the first event and working on them in much more detail. Come prepared to get stuck in, and to take away things to do afterwards. I’ll post more information when the programme’s sorted.
If you have been looking at this blog, you’ll notice that the pictures are not exactly from round here, are they!!
If you have any lovely images of Moseley or Kings Heath, please get in touch. I’m really interested in any pictures where there are local residents or people who work here in them – that’s what gives me a sense of this area! We can then add them to the top banner so it starts to feel like a blog for this part of the world.
(Please make sure you have the permission of any people in the photos before you send them in!)
If anyone has any questions, please get in touch – firstname.lastname@example.org (0121 303 6604). (Although no technical photography advice available – I’m awful at it!)
Big thanks to everyone who came along to the new Community Partnership event earlier this month. Great to see everyone getting stuck in and helping out. And we’ve been blown away by everyone’s Big Asks and Big Offers. Just goes to show what great places Kings Heath and Moseley are to live and work in!
Hope everyone has had time to watch the videos from the night – budding film stars, I’m not sure (!) but definitely gives a sense of who we are and what we want from this.
I’ve finally had a chance to put down all of the Big Asks and the Big Offers so you can see what other people have said. (Fingers crossed, this should work for you all!).
