Views from the Past

County needs more of Charlie

It was so refreshing and uplifting to read your latest edition, not only for its diversity of local articles and information, but for the fact that we have finally got a positive-looking independent candidate without a political axe to grind, hoping to stand as County Councillor representing Alvechurch Parish and Wythall South in the forthcoming May elections.

Cofton’s been short-changed by council

I refer to Councillor Richard Deeming’s letter last month (“Traffic scheme ‘foisted’ on village”) highlighting the problems encountered by the residents of Cofton Hackett with the traffic-calming measures on Groveley Lane.

My grandson attends Lickey Hills Primary School. Having read in April’s Village Views the letter “Bollard is a distraction” from a Lickey resident, surely anything to slow down the speeding traffic on Old Birmingham Road has to be good.

Cofton Hackett? More like Aintree or Brands Hatch!

You are now entering Aintree racecourse – sorry, Groveley Lane, or that’s what we thought when the white picket fences went up.

I’m not convinced that the bollard outside Lickey Hills Primary School is there to deter parking. I think it is there to send out a message to approaching drivers: “child, slow down.”

No evidence of demand for loo

I’m grateful to David Barton of Weatheroak for recognising comedic talent in his letter last month, “Village does not need a new loo”, which asked “are Hotham, Gumbley and Briggs a comedy act?”

Lack of parking hampers trade

The difference between Alvechurch and Barnt Green village centres is that one is vibrant and bustling with a good choice of shops, all occupied and trading well, and the other has empty premises and limited choice.

Can you believe the cheek of Birmingham? Our big city neighbour wants to use our green fields for housing, while keeping its open spaces free for the good of its citizens.
