Come along to the East Handsworth Police Community Meeting, at Golden Croft Handsworth, on Saturday July 6th 2013 at 18:00pm. Bring any concerns or issues you would like to raise with your local Police Officers. This is a great opportunity to offer any suggestions to make this community safer! So don't forget.
One of the BIGGEST problem Handsworth faces, is the rubbish and litter in the community. I think if we all play our part by doing even the smallest things to keep our commnity clean (e.g making use of all the Bins), that will result in a welcoming and pleasent image of our Handsworth.
If you have any damaged or unwanted : Fridges, TV, Radiators, Baths, Gates, Washing Machines, Other Furniture or OR items that are TOO BIG to fit in your black bins!
Call: 0121 450 7824
3 Items are FREE, log on to find out more; about more than 3 items. Always ensure when you make a collection request, that you specify ALL the items that you WANT collected; because any items that are not listed will not be collected!
On Monday 12th November 2012, the service will change to a Monday – Friday service.
I was appointed as neighbourhood manager in September to co-ordinate delivery of neighbourhood management in Handsworth up until 31st March 2011. Handsworth as benefited from having a neighbourhood manager as part of Birmingham City Council’s first pilot for the citywide neighbourhood programme.
What this means is that in priority neighbourhoods there is a dedicated resource through a neighbourhood manager whose job it is to focus work on improving key issues that impact on the lives of local residents e.g. environmental issues.
It is a fantastic opportunity to work with local residents and service providers to try and find some local solutions to local problems. As part of this work since September I have been out and about around Handsworth talking to local residents and services to map out a neighbourhood plan.
The plan has been produced to set out how, through neighbourhood management, we aim to improve the quality of life of residents in Handsworth up to the March 2011 and sets out a vision for more sustained change. Engagement and feedback from local residents is really important to this process to ensure that we achieve some real improvements.
This plan is based on what local residents and service providers have told us are the important issues in Handsworth. Part two of the plan sets out a programme of activities to be delivered by a range of identified partners. The programme of activities will be reviewed and updated regularly, with the support and involvement of residents and service providers.
Feedback and thoughts about this plan, local issues and progress in Handsworth is welcome this can be done by attending one of the Resident Network meetings held each month or by contacting me on 303 3401 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
