ROAD CLOSURES FOR SOLIHULL HALF MARATHON 15TH AUGUST

The Solihull Half Marathon will cut B93 in two and make getting to Solihull difficult for some for most of the morning. It appears that there will be road closures in Widney Manor Road, Smiths Lane, Browns Lane, Tilehouse Green Lane, Longdon Road, Lodge Road, Warwick Road and Hampton Road from around 9.00am and Kixley Lane/Kenilworth Road/High St from about 9.30am these closures seem to be due to last until about 12:00 to 12:30. (The route of the run can be seen here https://www.runsolihull.com/course-map/). Anyone planning a journey that day may need to plan ahead!!

LIBRARY BOOKS APPEAL

During the first lockdown Solihull Libraries took the decision to remove fines for overdue items and earlier this year library fines were permanently removed.

Despite the relaxing of fines, the Libraries service is reminding people that it is still important to  return overdue library items to their local libraries so that stock can be made available for other residents.

DISABILITY FACILITIES GRANTS

The Council is considering increasing the flexibility of funding of the Disabled Facilities Grant, which enables adaptations such as widening doors and installing ramps for wheelchair access, adapting a current bathroom or bedroom or providing the means to access a garden safely. Homeowners, private tenants and parents/guardians of disabled children can apply for a grant if the disabled person is living in the property.
