Message from Saltley

A huge turnout at St Peter’s College for my first residents’ meeting in this part of town. I’ve been wanting to come and visit St Peter’ s for some time. The college was opened by the last Lord of the manor of Saltley, Lord Adderley in 1852, for 30 Anglican student teachers on a piece of his land at Over Saltley to the east of Hall Farm. It was intended to be the focus of life in the village that Adderley planned. Lots of residents tonight were angry with Birmingham City Council. We agreed three priorities; pressing the council and police to sort out joy-riders in the car-park opposite St Peter’s; accelerating plans for a new park, where families and youngsters could feel safe to play; and getting the streets clean  – something on which i tackled Birmingham’s chief executive when a saw him a few weeks ago.
