Speaker Evening – Next Monday, 15th November

Our first post-pandemic Speaker Evening in the Village Hall will feature Wellesbourne based actress, Ginny Davis and her talk ‘To the Fringe and Beyond’. 
 
She will give us a fascinating and entertaining tale of her journey from the courtroom to the theatre via a one-woman show in Edinburgh, swapping the wig and gown of a barrister for the wigs and greasepaint of the stage, taking the plunge of foregoing delivering the persuasive argument to the jury in favour of giving life to a character from the pages of a script to rows of paying punters.
 
Please join us for what promises to be an inspiring and amusing evening in the Village Hall on Monday 15th at 7.30pm
 
NB: Regulars – please note the start time

A New Bus Survey

Please help by completing the survey whether you do/would catch buses or not.
As members of the KDBH Bus Action Partnership, the Society is eager to seek bus services that are matched to the needs of users and would be users, particularly at a time when policymakers are encouraging reduced car use.

The Partnership has produced a survey designed to identify the needs of those interested in using buses for some journeys and to understand why services are unsuitable for others.

Please give a few minutes of your time to complete the questionnaire here.

FREE MONEY FOR GOOD PROJECTS

Each year the Council distributes money to local projects that improve the local ‘infrastructure’.  Last year the Society was awarded a large sum of money which enabled the Playground project to be launched.  The time has come for this year’s projects to be voted for by local communities, so this is your chance to influence which project gets money to help it get off the ground.

The KDBH Forum is calling on all local residents to vote for their preferred project(s).
The funds available to the two local areas are:-

  • Dorridge & Bentley Heath – £39,040.06​
  • Knowle – £20,499.61

These are this year’s contenders:-

Calling all KDBH Residents (only)
 
Not yet voted for the KDBH community project(s) you think most deserves funding this year?  
We’ve had lots of votes – although from only 93 members so far… Please support this important event.  It’s not too late.  With last week being half term, we’ve extended voting until 5pm, Saturday 6 November 2021 to allow as many as possible to vote, although this shortens how long we have to analyse the results and report back to the Council.
 
Don’t miss out – it’s quick and easy to vote.  All details on our Webpage Here.
