I have started off the summer break by acquainting myself with local businesses, particularly in the new parts of my constituency- Selly Oak and Bournville. I have been out and about visiting small service sector businesses in the constituency, kicking off by meeting community baker Tom Baker of Loaf in Cotteridge, Birmingham’s first organic butcher Steve Rossiter of S&A Rossiter Organic Butcher in Bournville and Leverton & Halls Deli and Coffee House also in Bournville.

I recently visited Selly Manor in order to learn more about this historic collection of buildings and Bournville community life. Whilst there, I met with Heritage Manager Gillian Ellis and Education Officer Daniel Callicott.Selly Manor put on a wonderful array of events throughout the year, whilst thousands of school children visit the Manor to learn all about Tudor England.Whilst in Bournville, I also visited a number of local shopkeepers and business owners.

I recently visited Chinnbrook Beach Bonanza to see for myself the wonderful and tireless work of the staff at Chinnbrook Family and Community Project.Catering for wee nippers’ right through to the age of 8, it certainly was a busy afternoon! The centre offers individual support to families whose children have special needs or disabilities, support groups, day trips and social activities for parents.Staff and volunteers are the lifeblood of the local community. A very enjoyable project indeed.
