Redhouse school site development of residential housing and a community centre.
I spoke with Councillor John Rochelle, who tells me there is at present a grant of £ 300,000 pounds set a side for the proposed Redhouse community centre, subject to 15 local people coming forward to form the management team as volunteers to take on the running of the facility which was presented at a recent meeting. However, at present there are still volunteer vancancies still open, but if these positions are not filled, then the whole community project and the £300,000 grant is in real danger of being withdrawn and scrapped, which will be a great pity for the Redhouse area.
If you or somebody you know wishes to find out more about becoming part of the volunteer management team, please contact Aldridge website and i will be very pleased to put you in touch with Councillor Rochelle and other people working towards making the community centre project a success.
I also spoke with Steve Pugh at walsall council “Estates dept” who tells me that the recently erected for sale board at the school site is the second part of the development which will be residential housing.
The residential development will only use land which has NOT been reserved for the proposed new community centre.
Ps. There will be one paid post at the community Centre, which will be the keyholder with overall resposibility, but the opportunities for the 15 volunteers helping for just a few hours each between them, much like the system that works so well in all other community centres, will mean that Redhouse local residents can have a host of facilities and events. Mother and toddlers groups, parties, kids disco, BBQ events, clubs, dancing, yoga, pilates, karate, all types of classes, coffee mornings. meetings, presentations and generally the list is only limited by your imagination and creativity, of course many of these facilities will generate income to maintain and self fund the proposed community centre, and help put Redhouse area back on the map with equal standing and access to services only available at present to other areas which mean travelling by car or a long walk !
( Just my personal thoughts on this opportunity for the Redhouse area: Alan Neath )

Aldridge Police Station is operational around the clock “Aldridge Police Station is open to the public 7am till 10pm Monday to Friday and 10am till 6pm Saturday and Sunday. The front office is manned by civilian members of staff who are entitled to breaks. To accommodate this the station is occasionally closed for a short period of time. The alternative would be to take an officer off the streets to cover the front office which we are reluctant to do. Although the station is closed to the public outside of the times given it remains an operational station 24/7 with neighbourhood officers and support teams officers coming and going throughout the day and night. A policy decision was made to close the station to the public of a night time as experience showed that the demand did not justify a member of police staff being posted to the station 24/7. This remains true and I do not envisage a time where the station will remain open 24hrs a day every day.” Sgt Finch, Neighbourhood Sergeant at Aldridge Police Station. If the door is closed or you require police assistance outside the front desk hours, use the public phone located outside the police station front doors, which is directly linked to Walsall Police HQ with 24 hour coverage. Neighbourhood Inspector Lisa-Jayne Robson is based at Aldridge Police Station covering Aldridge, Streetly, Pheasey, Pelsall, Shelfield, Rushall, Brownhills and Walsall Wood, and gives regular information about your area and the opportunity to meet at events organised by Walsall Police through twitter
