CRS encourages residents to develop a sense of community. This benefits residents by promoting social connectedness that is cross generational.
Developing a feeling of belonging, where residents matter, working together, striving and supporting one another helps us to become a thriving community.
Since 2017, our community activities have been boosted by a Local Innovation Fund grant.
Sustainable activities have been developed to include residents coffee mornings, litter picking initiatives, art workshops and community gardening engagement at a school, community centre and at the Botanical Gardens. More on our Community Activities page.
Blue Plaque Walks have been designed and published and community notice boards erected.
We have also established links with local organisations such as Universities of Birmingham and Birmingham City, Warwickshire Cricket Club, Martineau Gardens, Winterbourne Gardens, Elmhurst and Edgbaston Village.
If you would like to organise a local meeting such as a residents’ coffee morning or have a skill, a query or question regarding the area please use the Contact form.
