The newly formed Barnt Green area Residents Association is to hold walkabouts so villagers can identify those parts of the area they particularly care about.

The “Walk, Talk and take Photographs” event is planned for Saturday June 16 and residents are “warmly welcomed”.

A spokeswoman said: “The BGRA want to know residents’ views, especially about the things that are treasured and those of concern within the Barnt Green area.

“Also, the Queen’s Jubilee year is a great time to record how the Barnt Green area now looks for future generations.

“Photos and comments from the walk will contribute towards a mapping exercise, all of which will be shared with the parish council and residents.”

There are three guided walks, each of which will take place from 10-11am, starting from either Twatling Road, Fiery Hill Road or Bittell Lane. Details will be advertised nearer the event or residents can email .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)

Meanwhile, members of the BGRA met with Banner Homes directors to find out the current stage of the Fiery Hill Road housing development and to ensure the developer was fully aware of the concerns of residents.

Banner is to hold an exhibition, similar to those held previously, to allow residents’ comments, suggestions and concerns to be aired.

“It was acknowledged that communication is of paramount importance to ensure a perfect understanding of the nature of the housing development,” said the spokeswoman.

* Shops and businesses in Barnt Green village will be having some fun in celebrating the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee by taking part in “The Best Dressed Jubilee Window” competition.

This will be judged by the BGRA Committee on Saturday June 2. Prizes will be awarded for the best Jubilee dressed windows and photographed for the next edition of The Village.
