The now traditional Oscott Have Your Say Day is an opportunity for residents to let their Oscott Councillors and Officers from the Birmingham City Council know, what they think about what is happening in the Oscott area. It is also a golden opportunity for members of the community young and old to have their say in regards to what they think should be done in the area.

In years gone by such issues as where to locate highly successful underground bottle banks, where new street lighting is most urgently needed and how to improve youth facilities have been put forward by residents.Through the have your say events and it is hoped more views will be put forward again on Saturday.

Local Community Groups and Schools have also been asked to take part and many will be issuing Oscott Have you say post cards during the week prior to the Have Your Say Day, these cards can be sent to the Constituency office to be considered as part of the Oscott Ward Development plan.

There will also be balloons and other goodies available for children on the day and there will be a number of information leaflets on all sorts of topics available for adults. There will also be an opportunity to learn about what Local Community Groups are up to in the area and to join them if you so wish.

The display unit will be located on the Kingstanding Circle during the morning and on the Hawthorn Road near Woolworth’s during the afternoon so please come along.

If you cannot make it on Saturday 8th please let me have your views 360 6486 and I will pass them on.

it is always good to see Councillors working for the community and wanting to know what we residents have to say.
