school, Robert Road B20. 24th October 9am till 10am in Infant Hall,

                                         Other residents are welcome, join us for a drink and a chat about local issues.






February 2013- we have now paid the rate demand to BCC of £575.57 as a result of a kind donation to Aston Vision Association. We will resume publication of the Birchfield Bugle should further funding become available from our Community First application.

 Due to  the demand, which we dispute, for £575.57 from Birmingham City Council to pay rates on a rent free room kindly given by St Teresas Parish, at 311a Wellington Road, occupied to do Community work between August 07 to October 09,there will be no further community announcementson this site. Voluntary work seems to very costly not only in terms of time given over to services which the council should have supported, butin actual hard cash that had been allocated to Community Reachout (Birchfield Bugle). Thanks for your support over the years, but this may be our last communication,sorry.
