  • Bit of an update

    It’s good to know that sometimes you get heard. After the C-word commotion last week Solihull MBC have suspended the voting pending a review of the process and, I am informed, the addition of more choice on names. All respect to SMBC for doing this. I know that a lot of people who had been pressing for a new start had been disappointed with the limited choice. It has been good to hear of the support of schools and local groups for a new name and a fresh start. As well as this, just meeting people in the street has shown the frustration at the push back we were given last week. To be honest, I think there was some frustration within the regen and borough council as they had been working to ensure local people got a voice, only for things to go a bit pear shaped. So, much respect to those in the council and regen who had the courage to listen to local people and revisit the vote. It is important that people have a say over matters like this and we’ll see what happens.

    Here’s to people power and democracy!

Welcome to the blog

Neil (the minister) occasionally gets round to blogging so welcome to the trivia and ramblings of an erratic stream of consciousness.

Because we try to be properly Baptist, these views aren't necessarily the views of everyone who is part of the church family here.

We're not even sure they're Neil's.

Either way, we try not to fall out over it.

You can also follow Neil's personal and irrelevant twitter.
