A group of green fingered Lickey End residents were so fed up with the environmental damage caused by Himalayan Balsam in their community they decided to take matters into their own hands. Gathering together on the first Sunday of October, a group of 20 residents cleared a long stretch of the brook at Lickey End Recreation Ground, shifting 85 large garden bags full of weeds between them.
Worcestershire County Council has come under yet more pressure to rethink changes to the A38 after a second group of residents staged a protest over the weekend. The action in Lickey End followed protests in Central Bromsgrove last month over plans to install a 'monster bridge' connecting the two sections of Old Station Road.
Lib Dem councillors Rob Hunter and Josh Robinson are inviting residents to join them in protesting against the Conservatives' plans to increase traffic on Birmingham Road by adding an extra lane, whilst removing the right hand turn into School Lane.
Residents are encouraged to join the protest on Sunday 3 October at 12 Noon on School Lane and Birmingham Road.
That's the question being put by two angry councillors representing Lickey End, after residents were left in the dark due to a lack of streetlight repairs.
Residents in Lickey End, Bromsgrove, have waited over A YEAR for a faulty streetlight to be repaired on a dangerous junction.
Highways operatives in Worcestershire are supposed to fix faulty street lights within 28 days according to the County Council's policy, but residents in Lickey End are furious after the Highways Department continually ignored their requests, which started back in July 2020.
Local councillors are angered at yet another delay in the opening of the footpath between Harvington Road and Charford Road, after it was announced the path would not be open for school term time.
Josh Robinson, Lib Dem County Councillor for Bromsgrove Central added, 'This footpath was meant to completed in 12 weeks, it was delayed once due to the council not wanting to put the bridge in place at the same time as Charford Road being closed but now we have another delay, doubling the time it was originally meant to be closed. This is unacceptable and gives me no faith that any other projects for on the A38 will be completed on time.'
