Free bike application process open

Residents can now apply for a free bike as part of the Big Birmingham Bikes programme. Birmingham City Council has announced that 2,000 adult bikes will be given away. The announcement says that priority will be given to families who plan to cycle together. A child’s bike bank will be launched later in the year.

In order to qualify for a free bike, people must live within an eligible postcode. You can check whether your postcode is eligible here. (There is a postcode checker at the bottom of the page.) The page also explains the other requirements that must be fulfilled before you can qualify for a free bike.

The application form can be accessed from here.

More participants for networking event

The list of organisations taking part in the networking event being organised by Kings Heath Residents’ Forum on 7 October 2017 continues to grow. The day is being organised to give residents the chance to find out about groups that provide help, advice and support. A range of groups will have displays at the event. Local people will be able to move around, gathering information on subjects that interest them.

Age UK and Moseley and Kings Heath Shed have already been featured as participants. One of the other groups that’s expected to attract attention is Moseley and Kings Heath neighbourhood Policing team. Members of the team will be present to discuss issues of concern to local people.

The newly formed Friends of Kings Heath Park will also be present, explaining how residents can get involved in making Kings Heath Park a family-friendly, community green space for future generations.

Networking event – sources of help and support

The networking event being organised by Kings Heath Residents’ Forum on 7 October 2017 will give local people the chance to find out about organisations offering advice, help and support in the area. Most of the spaces for organisations have already been filled although there are still a few available.

Among the first to confirm attendance was Age UK which provides help for older people. The range of advice and support includes information on the benefits individuals are entitled to, how to find help at home and guidance  on health conditions. If you, an elderly friend or relative needs help or support, Age UK representatives will be on hand to explain what the organisation does.

Members of Moseley and Kings Heath Shed will also be at the event, explaining what the organisation does and how older men and women in the area can join in the activities. The Shed itself, in Kings Heath Park, is a fully equipped workshop providing the tools needed for woodwork, metal-work and working with glass. Again, representatives will be at the networking day to explain how people can benefit from taking part in the Shed’s activities.

The event will also include youth groups, fitness groups, the Police and local Councillors.
