Recently we saw the re-opening of Edgewood Hall in Rednal.
This was a facility that served a lot of people in the area but after the old committee disbanded we have made various efforts to keep it open but finally the decision was made to close it as it was costing Northfield Constituency £5000 pa.
Here in Longbridge we have been trying to find someone to take over and finally settled on an organisation called BLISS (Better Life Inspiration Support Services) who work with young people to help them into work. They are pledged to help other organisations to make full use of the hall and bring this much loved building back into public use.
Keith was delighted to be asked to perform the opening ceremony and did so with an, as usual, short speech.
