Kings Heath Residents’ Forum public meeting and AGM 20 September 2014

We will be hosting a public meeting – ‘Your generation My generation’ – at All Saints Centre (Main Hall) on Saturday 20 September 2014, 11am-1:30pm.  This will be followed by our Annual General Meeting (AGM) from 2-3pm.

The meeting is free for all to attend. The venue is wheelchair-accessible.

We are holding the meeting to give you some information about what is going on in Kings Heath for our youth and seniors. We are looking in particular at the provision of support and services in the area. This includes youth activities, lunch clubs, etc.

It would be great if you could come on the day to see what Kings Heath has to offer you (or your children, parents, grandparents, friends and neighbours).

What is happening on the day?

AGE UK will attending to provide advice and general information.

CircusMASH are on a mission, striving to drive circus arts within the West Midlands region. That’s right folks… Circus in Birmingham! A bag of fun, they specialise in developing lives by promoting the opportunity of positive change through circus arts and performance for adults and children in the West Midlands. They will be giving a presentation at 11am.

NeighbourWatch will be on hand to provide some security advice.

Sainsbury’s will show how they have been working with a local community youth group as part of their business charity work.

Kings Heath Explorer Scouts will be attending to let you know about all their activities and trips.

Councillor Lisa Tricketts has agreed to attend to answer questions or provide advice.

Following the open meeting, there will be the Kings Heath Residents’ Forum AGM from 2–3pm.

We would really like you to stay for the AGM so that you can hear what we have been doing about litter in Kings Heath, road safety, planning applications and the bingo hall to mention a few.

Paul Slatter is planning to attend to talk about timebanks. Timebanks are ways for people to provide services to others and get something back in return. They help people volunteer their time to someone else and get anything back without going into any financial arrangements. For example, someone could mow your lawn for you and you could make them a cake.

Kings Heath Residents’ Forum is run by residents for residents. We are unpaid volunteers. We are funded by a grant from Birmingham City Council.
