Are you planning on spending time outdoors? Play your part in helping to keep our environment clean and litter-free: bring a bag to take your rubbish home with you to throw away or recycle. Don’t leave rubbish next to a full bin. Litter ruins our great outdoors by harming our wildlife and polluting our waters. Remember, bins aren’t always available outdoors, especially in the countryside
The Parish Council were delighted to welcome our local Police Sergeant Paula McDowell to their September meeting. Residents have been concerned about recent anti-social behaviour, in particular on the Village Green late at night. Sergeant McDowell said that crime is generally very low in Dickens Heath – it is mainly car thefts, with Land Rovers a particular target, and the occasional house break-in. She was not aware of anti-social behaviour on the Village Green. She therefore encouraged all residents to log any ASB problems – via the on-line chat or by ringing 101. She emphasized that the Police can only do something if they are aware of the problem, and logs will be brought to the attention of her team. Instances of vandalism, underage drinking, potential drug taking and ASB should all be logged – to inform the Police of low level problems before they escalate. She added that noise is not a police issue.
Solihull council have an amazing opportunity coming up for residents of Solihull.

The course will provide people with the skills, knowledge and confidence needed to get their business (or idea) up and running.
The course is for people of all ages, but they must be Solihull residents. The course will take place on Zoom.
