Hello and a Happy New Year from Green Revolutions!

With my lists of 3 good things

You may remember filling in our online survey or talking to us at a stall in 2012. This email is just to update you on how we are doing, as we move towards starting up Green Revolutions, Stirchley's own pay-as-you-go car and cycle club.

Well, we've been busy planning how things will work - and how it will all get paid for - and hope to launch around Easter 2013. More details to follow soon...

3 good things that happened in Stirchley in 2012:
(links to websites and email addresses are in bold type)
  • Loaf community bakers and Stirchley Food Co-op started trading on the Pershore Road (the old snooker place, near the junction with Mary Vale Road), selling yummy fresh bread, eggs, butter, pasta, nuts, cleaning products, etc, etc, at low prices 
  • Birmingham City Council voted for a default speed limit of 20mph on residential roads in the city. This will really help to make roads safer and less daunting for cyclists and pedestrians. More on Birmingham Friends of the Earth's "20 is plenty" campaign here 
  • Stirchley Urban Resource Network was launched - local groups, businesses and residents working together for the benefit of Stirchley 

3 good things to watch for in 2013:
  • Friends of Hazelwell Park and Friends of Stirchley Park working to improve our local green spaces - everything from new benches to edible fruit trees
  • The 20 mph speed limits will be phased in, after consultation with local communities - so please respond to anything you hear about and encourage your local councillors to support the change
  • Green Revolutions will be launching - pay-as-you-go cars and cycles:  reducing car use and pollution by running a low CO2 car and cycle club that is cheaper and more convenient than owning a car
We are very excited about Green Revolutions and hope you will be too. We will be sending updates every few weeks or so. If you do not want to receive any further updates, please use the unsubscribe link below.

See you soon!
