Ward End school pupils to get insight into church’s transformation


Next Thursday (27 February 2014) pupils from Sladefield Infants School in Ward End will get an insight into the £1m project transforming the previously tired and little-used St Margaret’s Church, St Margaret’s Road, Ward End, into a fantastic community hub and a heritage & community space.


Local residents are up in arms to learn that the Tory-Lib Dem government has handed Britain's millionaires a £40,000 tax cut, while part time workers have had their tax credits slashed.


The Lib Dem Tory budget ordered a big cash handout for Britain's richest citizens - yet took money away from the poorest.


Anyone working 16 hours loses ALL their tax credits unless they can find more hours.


I'm taking direct action to help get local young people into work. I've bought together JobCentrePlus, Enterprising Communities, Birmingham businesses and training providers for a massive jobs summit for local young people.

Hodge Hill has the highest rate of youth unemployment in Britain – long term youth unemployment up 57% in the last year.

All Saints Church, Shard End has organised a Remembrance Service Church Service, March and Cenotaph Service for Sunday 13th November 2011. This is the day people across the nation pause to reflect on the sacrifices made by our brave Service men and women.

Liam Byrne MP is calling for residents to support our Service men and women by attending the Service at 10.45am, All Saints Church, Ownall Road, Shard End. Followed by a March to the Crown Club and Service at the Cenotaph.

Liam Byrne is asking residents to comment on Labour’s plan for jobs and growth following new unemployment figures revealing the jobless rate in Hodge Hill is still rising.

Under the Tories an extra 753 people are claiming Job Seekers Allowance in Hodge Hill, that’s a rise of 11% in the last 12 months – giving Hodge Hill the second highest jobless total in the country.
