FOOT BALL PITCHES NEED TO BE SAVED


Councils are being forced due to the Governments Austerity led cuts to sell off football pitches

new figures show that there were 710 fewer local-authority owned or operated football pitches in the financial year 2017/18 than there were in 2009/10 – before the Conservatives’ austerity project began.

No where is safe this is country wide.

DOG FOULING MUST BE PREVENTED



Sadly with the summer now with us there seem to be more dog fouling going on in some parts of the Oscott ward.

While the vast majority of local dog owners are sensible and bag and take their dogs mess home there is still a stubborn few who do not realise their dogs mess is not only offensive to many but has the possibility of effecting children's eyesight.

Please pick up and take home your dogs mess especially from public open spaces where children play. Doggy bags can still be purchased from the pound shops and many retailers.
It could save you a hefty fine is you get some and use them.

WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT




As your Oscott Councillors Barbara Dring and I are doing what we can to support Oscott residents who want to create a Village Green status for the Glenmead Playing field site. If we can obtain this status for the field and there is no doubt this is not an easy thing to do we need the support of resident.
Creating a Village green would secure the fields future for generations to come and give the local community the say in what happens on it. Barbara (who is leading on this) and I are lobbying the Government.

We would like to see addressed and signed letter from residents telling is of their memories of using the field and of their support.
Please either write to either Councillor Barbara Dring or myself  C/o The Birmingham City Council House

NO EXCUSES FOR FLY TIPPING




I am chasing up the removal of what looks to be an industrial freezer on the Dyas Road. Sadly other rubbish is being put with it.
If a vehicles has been used to dump the fridge it could have easily been taken to the Holford drive recycling centre further down the Aldridge Road. Councillor Barbara Dring and I are on the look out for fly tipped rubbish and report it when seen.
No excuses for fly tipping.

SADLY THERE HAS BEEN SOME ACTS OF ASB AND VANDALISM IN THE RESERVE




Following reports of mind less vandalism on the Queslett Nature Reserve today from  2 of my fellow Reserve Watch member Brenda and John I have been out on patrol again today.

Sadly trees and iris have been up rooted near the end of the lake. Brenda and I have now reported this act of vandalism to the Local Police Team and Parks department.

There are also reports of acts of anti social behaviour by a couple of dog walkers. We will ask the Police and Parks department to try and monitor this.
 We are also considering using some Wildlife CCTV equipment to keep an eye on some of the wild life in the reserve.
The FQNR would ask those using the reserve to report any ASB or vandalism they see.

The FQNR Reserve watch will also try and monitor the situation.
