The Cut: 11.03.2016 The week reviewed and updated


Friday 11th March 2016

Sadly, the week began with the arrival of a third illegal encampment on Northfields Way. Happily, it’s arrival generated much discussion, which resulted in a good attendance, at the last of the public consultation meetings concerning the proposed barriers on Northfields Way.

As has been pointed out many times on social media this week, it’s always best to ask the questions of those people in the know. Laura Terry is Area Partnership Manager at Walsall Council and is able to answer any questions you may have regarding the plans for the barriers. Cllr Steve Wade and Cllr Ferguson are both elected members and are here to serve the community they represent. They are in a position to find out the information we want to know about matters concerning Clayhanger and Brownhills. Cllr Wade has a Facebook page and a blog site which he uses to update residents of Brownhills and Clayhanger. Cllr Ferguson’s email address can be found on the Walsall Council Website along with all other elected members.

Interest in the Silver Thread Tapestry Project has generated a potential meeting for Clayhanger next week (day and time to be confirmed) it’s not too late to sign up if you are interested.

The Clayhanger Spring Clean is set for Saturday 19th March from 8.30 – 10.30 am. Currently, there are about 8 confirmed volunteers which is a great response with short notice, but more could easily be accommodated!

Coming up…

Make sure you get your Green Bin emptied this week and avoid the dreaded yellow sticker!
