From March 2015, parish councillors will be available at the parish council office at 80 Hewell Road between 10.30am and 11.30am on the third Saturday of each month in order to meet residents and other village stakeholders wishing to raise issues or make enquiries. Come along on Saturday 21 March and meet your councillors.
Pam Eves, the Barnt Green Troop Aid co-ordinator has asked the Parish Council to pass on her thanks to all the residents who continue to donate shower gel and other toiletries via the drop-off facility at the parish council office. Although the current need in Afghanistan has diminished, grab bags are now being sent to overseas field hospitals so donations continue to be welcome.
Barnt Green is a popular, semi-rural village of some 728 households in the north of the Bromsgrove District of Worcestershire. The Parish is bounded on its north-west side by the wooded Lickey Hills and to the east by the Upper and Lower Bittell Reservoirs.
The village centre contains many destination shops and services. Key services such as doctors, dentists, a post office, restaurants, take-away food outlets and several small businesses are also centrally located in the village.
Residents are well served by a wide range of community services, clubs and societies including churches, sports and social clubs, an excellent school and several pre-school playgroups and nurseries.
