Fantastic turn out of 150 people. Great company, great food, and fantastic speeches from Andy Street and the Government Chief Whip The Rt Hon Gavin Williamson MP.

Harborne Lane Update

001.JPGAt the weekend I met up with Mayoral candidate Andy Street at the site of the sink hole in Harborne Lane.

A lot of damage was created when the main water main burst in November, and there is some frustration now amongst local people that the road has still not been repaired.

At Full Council today I received an update on the situation (in the form of an answer to my written question). After weeks of investigation work, I was told Severn Trent have confirmed that work to actually repair the pipe has now begun. They currently estimate this will be completed by mid-February.

Once the pipe is repaired, work will begin to reinstate the road surface and structure, and re-open Harborne Lane. I am told this is not expected to be before the end of February (and another Councillor informs me that he has been told early March).

Meanwhile traffic is being diverted through the QE Hospital site in Edgbaston causing a lot of extra congestion there.

Celebrating Chinese New Year At Gracewell Of Edgbaston

Cllr Robinson and I were delighted to be invited along to Gracewell of Edgbaston’s beautiful home on Speedwell Road today.

We joined residents in the lounge to watch a spectacular traditional Lion Dance and then were shown round the home, including the new floor which was officially opened today.

A lovely morning and we were very impressed by everything we saw. Happy New Year – the Year of the Rooster!
