I got the Weoley Castle - should have got the Four Oaks but it's Sutton Coldfield so not really Brum to me
I must look at it again today.

First time in "town" for a while and walked past this. Quite scary when you get close up.
Franco Manca just opened on Bennets Hill! woop!
All pizzas £5 for the first two weeks I read. Do they get you on the drinks?
not really. Best cheap(ish) pizza going
Fab re Franca Manca.
Anyone in Brum experienced any of this happening on the outer circle 11 bus route today, part of this
'We caught a bus to stop feeling lonely'
National Express deploying actors, poets and games to help trigger conversations on its route 11, which connects Birmingham's most affluent and deprived areas
It’s a Sunday, if anyone is wondering.
I actually think this is a really good idea. Kings Heath had a day last year where car use was discouraged by air quality campaigners and the BBC. Parking was banned in the high st and parking spaces greened.
It was good, even if loads of car brains ignored it, to get a sense of how much better things felt without the endless traffic.
To add, I used the new A38 cycle lane into town today. Fair play to the council - it works (in the main). Cars are kept well away and bar a few problems towards town at the bottom of Bristol Street it was possible to forget cars completely.
Given the appalling congestion and lunatic driving in the city, it feels like a real step forward for Brum. Let’s hope they build more of them. I’m going to give the A34 one a go next week even though I’ve got no idea what to do once I get to Perry Barr. It just feels good, almost transgressive, to be able to cycle round our car choked town.
Wow. Wish they would hire me. The number 11 formed a huge part of my life in my teens and early 20s. Have numerous stories about things that happened on board.
Clean Air Zone to be significantly postponed due to Government delays - Birmingham Updates
Oh for fucks sake
Exactly. One step forward etc.
The delight of the car brains at this news on social media tonight is depressing
To slightly off this car news. Free daysaver if you're a bus user or planning to use the bus within the next week. Must be filled in today.
ETA: I think you can fill it in tomorrow as well.
National Express Bus – National Express Bus
Sorted, cheers. It's part of a Clean Air campaign as well so very much on topic.
I might get the famous No 11 and disappear for a day.
Don't know if anyone has been following this story but it appears that the NEU (previously NUT) do not seem to be supporting this strike. On the face of it the NASUWT members have a legitimate dispute over the right to work safely. I don't know anything about the school or the background but found it odd that the nominally right wing NASUWT are on strike and the NEU are not.
Teachers strike again over pupil violence in Birmingham
Cars to be banned from roads outside these six city schools
Should be all across the region not just 6 primaries.
My kids school is one of the six, can’t think who it might have been that got the head to apply
Looking forward to the backlash, keep us updated.
This as well. I’m sure people will just fine that this continues to be Birmingham at war with the car.
Competition for Birmingham schools | ‘Switch off’ poster competition for Birmingham schools | Birmingham City Council
Strike action by support staff at Birmingham University next Tuesday and Wednesday. Stewards from our Branch will be visiting the pickets before work to show our support. Hopefully RMT, PCS and others will be joining us. If any of you local can come as well you’d be welcome.
Simmer Down Festival next Sunday.
Some good music on. The bar prices last year were reasonable, its a nice day out.
I'll be there this year. Really looking forward to seeing Horace Andy.
