The Society’s first ‘Litter Pick’ of 2014 will take place on Monday 3rd March 10:30 at the Wychwood island. All welcome – litter pickers, black sacks and high-visibility tops will be provided.
At the AGM on 17th February members asked us to publicise the contact details for reporting local potholes – this is 0121 704 6834 or firstname.lastname@example.org for the Knowle area.
The honeymoon is over. As many members observed, the Society helped the Council staff introduce people parking their cars to the new ‘free and display’ parking scheme in Knowle. From that time infringements have received only ‘warning’ notices. From Monday 6th January these notices will be backed up with actual penalties!
A helpful leaflet has been produced by the West Midlands Police on how they may be contacted.
Following an extra take-off route having been suggested, the Society has responded further (see copy of letter attached below) to the recent consultation. This additional route reinstates a version of the ‘Hampton Turn’ and would have the effect of aircraft leaving the airport flying closer to Knowle than our preferred suggested route. We have re-emphasised our support for the ‘straight-on’ route.
