Working together for a resilient Birmingham.

Partnership working at its best

On Monday the 1st March (St David’s Day) there was a great display of mutual support when community volunteers, officers and elected members all put their best foot forward and carried out a really successful community litter pick of the River Rea in Frankley. Welcome refreshments were served after the tiring effort at the Reaside Community Centre.

Since the floods in 2008, the community, supported by both the New Frankley in Birmingham Parish Council and Birmingham City Council Officers, Residents Groups, Voluntary Groups and elected members have been working together to reduce the risk of flooding and improve the environment.

Veronica Coleman, Principal Emergency Planning Officer from Birmingham Resilience Team said, “If you were involved please let us know how the day went or if you are interested in volunteering for the next clean up, please let us know.  Well done to everyone concerned”
