The next planning meeting of the campaign to save the 14 Council day nurseries is on Monday 6th of August at 9:30 am at Oaklands Park day nursery, Boughton Rd Yardley, B25 8AJ. The meeting will be focused on the lobby of the September council meeting, where it is expected that the decision about the 14 nurseries will be made.
But bad news about the Fairway day centre in Kings Norton, used by people with disabilities. This week the Council’s Cabinet made a final decision to close the venue. “Chiefs were branded a ‘disgrace’ by one Fairway visitor as campaigners who have fought to save it filed out of the meeting room.” (B Post 2/8)
