FIREBIRD PUB BECOMES SOCIAL CENTRE.
The squat at the Firebird Pub, Bellevue, Edgbaston, opens as a social centre.
Campaigners and supporters have spent the last week, clearing rubbish from inside and out the former derelict pub. One local resident commented “it looks much better with the litter and weeds moved”
A painting party will be held on Saturday evening 29/11/08 to brighten the inside of the building in readiness for our opening next week.
Pop in for a chat and a cuppa, there are people on hand to give advice on housing issues and almost anything!
We welcome any ideas on what residents would like to see at the centre, we have already opened a games room for the local youth which has a pool table kindly donated. A library is being set up too.
Forthcoming attractions include a boot sale, curry night, and more !! Watch this space or pop in to find out more information.
We are in need of any donations people are able to give food and seating items being a priority, Thanks to all the people who have been so generous with donations to-date.
