24 June 2022 – Message from Councillor Ian Courts, Leader of Solihull Council

Your Future Solihull, launched this week, is all about creating a vision for a prosperous low carbon future and how together we can make this vision a reality.

Your Future Solihull (YFS) is how we will talk about climate change and the new web pages are where we bring together all our initiatives, policies and successes related to climate change and sustainability.  You can expect to see the YFS logo more often in the future, both on our existing and any new initiatives supporting our climate change work.

I want the Council to be the best at informing you and being transparent about what we are doing when it comes to the climate crisis. To keep up to date sign up to receive regular bulletins here.

  • Applying for free tickets to the Jubilee Gardens Extravaganza on Tuesday July 26, part of the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games festivities.

New residents thanked for their contributions to the community

The Mayor of Solihull, Councillor Ken Meeson, met with two Solihull residents this week to thank them for their contributions to the community.

Miu Ching Yeung and Yuk Ming Wong moved to Solihull from Hong Kong in 2021 and have since made a huge effort to be good, friendly neighbours to those on their street. The Mayor invited them to his parlour as a recognition of their actions and to thank them.

Councillor Michael Gough, Cabinet member for Children and Education, made the Mayor aware of their good deeds and so also met with the residents as he lives on their street and was touched by their efforts.
