Cotteridge continues to fight against the cuts
Stirchley and Cotteridge Against the Cuts' follow up meeting was a success, as campaigners agreed on a programme of future activity.
The meeting, which took place Wednesday 9th March, focused maily on the local day centre for the elderly and the Cotteridge Neighbourhood Office. Their hope is that they both stay open and provide the same level of service as before.
However, they are now waiting to see the outcome of the Council budget vote and how it will affect the centre.
One campaigner said: "nothing is concrete yet but the cabinet report has outlined centres across the country that will close."
The protestors will be focusing on building support for the TUC demonstration on the 26th March and the Birmingham budget day protest on March 23rd.
There will be a street stall on Saturday 19th March at Cotteridge island, 11am till 12.30pm.
It was also announced that Ed Balls would be speaking at the Selly Oak Labour Party meeting Thursday 17th March.
Stirchley and Cotteridge against the cuts next meeting will be on Monday 4th April, 7.30pm at the Stirchley Community Centre
