Chair's Report, September 2019
Our AGM will be held on Monday, September 30th; please keep the date free, we really value the contribution you can make. A glass of wine and nibbles will be served at 7.0pm and the meeting will follow at 7.30pm. We hope our local County, District and Parish Councillors will be there to answer your questions and we plan to continue the emphasis on residents' participation we have adopted over the past few years. We will be voting on suggestions for the charity we will support in our Santa Sleigh evening on Friday December 13th. Please pass on any suggestions you have by Sept 12th. Also, if you have any particular topic you would like to hear a presentation on, please let rne know.
The July Residents' lunch was another resounding success, with delicious food and a welcome chance to catch up with Burton Green friends. If transport to these events is difficult for you, please let me know and we would be delighted to arrange a lift.
Our local 87 Johnsons bus continues to provide a very reliable hourly service to Coventry, via Cannon Park in one direction and Balsall Common, Knowle and Solihull in the other, running Monday to Saturday. It is almost a decade since we lost the daily service to Kenilworth, but we do have a bus which runs twice a week on the 233 Solihull to Kenilworth route. It approaches Cromwell Lane from the Tlle Hill direction, arriving at the water tower 10.56am, then continuing down Red Lane. It will stop at all Cromwell Lane bus stops if you indicate you want it to stop. Red Lane residents can flag it clown from anywhere on the Kenilworth bound side of the road. On Mondays it is a green and yellow small coach and on Thursdays, a white Flexibus minibus. They arrive at the Kenilworth clock outside the Holiday Inn at 11.05 am and leave hom there at 12.35pm (Monday) and 1.45 pm (Thursday). The service is operated by A and M. tel. 01926612487. In supporting these bus services, rather than driving, you will be helping the environment as well as maintaining the viability of services which are some residents' only means of transport.
Residents have expressed concern at the time taken by HS2 to prepare houses they have purchased for let. Together with the Parish Council, we held a meeting with HS2 urging them to speed up the process so that we do not have empty houses.
The former Second World War Air Raid Warden's shelter in Red Lane will shortly be stripped of its ivy as a first stage in its restoration. Thanks are due to Cala Homes for agreeing to provide a bench for the renovated shelter.
Tuesday September 10th brings the return of the Cake Coffee and Computers Club at the village hall, which so many of us have found to be such a help. Please note the new time 10.00 —12.00.
I hope you all had a wonderful summer and I look forward to seeing you at the September 30th AGM.
