|Mainly For Brummies But All Are Welcome To Join In The Birmingham Fun & Chat|
This is the place where Brummies used to chat about Birmingham old and new along with anything else that interests us. We have Quizzes, Pizzas, Local History, News, Politics, Wedding Cake, Plum Pudding, Champagne, Easter Eggs and, above all, Respect for our fellow members.
Manchester is one of the worst hit Councils by the planned government cuts and they have started to wield the axe. Cuts announced are,
36 Sure Start Nurseries
20 Youth Centres
3 Sports Centres
6 Public Toilets
2 Swimming Pools
£40 million for Adult Care
£45 million Children’s Services
£12.6 Million Housing for Vulnerable People
2000 Jobs (17%) of Council jobs to go.
I somehow think that the 3,700 job losses in Birmingham and increases to council house rents and car parking along with restricted funds for care and the arts are not going to be all that we have to face ahead.
Make Love, Not War
