Latest crime figures reflect what people are telling me; says local MP

Latest crime figures reflect what people are telling me; says local MP

Earlier today I attended a protest against a phone mast proposal. The application states that the site which has been chosen is the junction of Heath Road and Selly Oak Road (Bournville Ward).Residents and politicians from all parties oppose this mast site due to its proximity to St. Joseph's Catholic Primary School; a fact we have fed back to the council during the consultation.However, it is now clear that the consultation is nothing of the kind.

It is the inspiration of local man, John Hewitt, a keen walker who developed the group as part of the ‘Fit for Life’ Walk 2000 Project. John says, ‘I wanted to show that it wasn’t necessary to spend lots of money on expensive equipment in order to keep fit.’ The group meets on a weekly basis and takes part in a 3Km walk involving warm up and warm down sessions to improve flexibility and reduce the risk of injuries. The route tends to follow a path along the Alcester Rd South, the canal path and the old BMX track.

On Wednesday 21st July I attended the Police Federation Constable’s Committee reception in order to meet with the representative body of the 110,000 police constables of England and Wales and discuss the challenging times ahead for policing. The federation is committed to maintaining the number of warranted police constables in England and Wales and to upholding the office of the constable as the bedrock of modern policing.
