QUESLETT NATURE RESERVE A GREEN PLEASANT PLACE TO RELAX.



Had walk round Queslett Nature Reserve with other FQNR. It certainly needed the heavy rain we had today the lake is very low and when that happens the Algy starts to grow which can be dangerous to both humans and dogs.
Never go in the Queslett nature Reserve lake if is full of under water obstacles and is not treated.

The reserve is a pleasant place to go for a walk at this time of year but please take your litter home with you.

RECYCLE DONT DUMP




I have had an interesting chat with Re Use who are a company with a premises in Norris Way Way Sutton Coldfield (near the Councils waste tip).
They take in unwanted items such as beds, tables, Chairs, lawn mowers which are in a reasonable condition to be recycled to others.
If you intend get rid of anything you think someone else may be able to use why not give Re Use a ring them 329 2797 and ask them if they would like the items. Alternatively when taking items to the Norris Way  waste tip drop in and ask them, if they do not want the items you are only yards from the tip anyway?
Never be tempted to fly tip if caught and prosecuted there could be a big fine or even imprisonment. It also cost us all a fortune in taxes to get rid of.

THANKS YOU TO THE FIRST AIDER WHO TRIED TO HELP AT THE KINGSLAND ROAD ACCIDENT



I have now met with a number of local residents who have been horrified by the accident involving a Police chasing a  stolen car and innocent victims going about their business at the Wandsworth Road/ Kingsland Road Junction

My thoughts go out to the family of the young lady killed in this collision.

I would also like to thank the local resident who gave first aid and tried to save the victims life she did all she could. She has told me she will remember this incident for ever.

The emergency teams did their jobs professionally as you would expect I have been told, so thank you to them to.

The Police now need time to investigate this collision and all those involved need to have their own space to try to understand what has happened.
