Celebrating Frankley Library

We also were delighted to attend the celebration at Frankley Library to mark the recent refurbishment carried out with Big Lottery money.
Keith tried out his plate spinning skills before Ken made the opening speech. Everyone then enjoyed a magnificent cake made by Penny Moore of The Friends of Balaam's Wood.
Does anyone know why it is called Balaam's Wood.

Non stop till Christmas

We have been kept busy for the last few weeks. We have completed delivery of our Autumn In Touch plus Bulky Rubbish leaflets and numerous letters on local issues. Next up are our Christmas cards. We have 11000 of these to deliver next month. We put "seasons Greetings" on them for the simple reason that we don't always get them finished before Christmas and sometimes push them through letter boxes up to the New Year. After all we like to enjoy Christmas too.
Just to show you a few of the things we have been up to here is a photo of Sue at Wembley with some of the staff and youngsters involved with the KICKZ project. One of the lads was a prize winner and Sir Trevor Brooking made a speech and presented a prize.

Labour Hypocrisy still rampant.

We read with great interest the recent article in the Birmingham Post highlighting the local MPs comments to Jaguar bosses that "they must restore trust with the workforce". Fine words and rhetoric from a person whose government have condemned thousands of manufacturing workers to the dole queue.
Ken, as a recruitment consultant whose company works closely with the automotive industry has seen at first hand the devastating effects the current governments lack of support has caused. Whilst pumping £billions into the banking system this government have failed in a dramatic fashion to provide support to the manufacturing industries in the Midlands - Jaguar being a prime example !
And lets not forget that as a direct result of the Labour governments love of taxation on emissions they have done more to force people into buying foreign cars than any other before them.
So here we are in the Midlands producing world reknowned quality built and prestigeous cars such as Jaguar and Landrover and Labour have a company car taxation system that effectively puts people off having them. Thats a great example of support to the industry !!
As for restoring trust with anyone I think the MP has a cheek trying to lecture anyone when MPs should be doing their utmost to restore trust with the electorate.
So I'm afraid it looks like same old soundbites and crocodile tears from Labour but then again there is an election looming !!
