A new community group has been set up in Leamore to improve community safety and the environment. The Leamore Community Group covers the whole of Leamore and meets regularly at the community room of the Leamore tenant management organisation (TMO) in Pembroke House, Comwall Close.
The group has only been running a couple of months but has already run a successful speed campaign in Somerfield Road, working with local businesses to ease traffic problems and lobbying Walsall council on the sale of alcohol when licensing shops in the area.
Chris Jones, Councillor for Birchills-Leamore, said: “We helped to set up this group in response to the many enquiries received by my colleagues, Cllrs Tina Jukes and Lee Jeavons. Anti-social behaviour and littering are problems within the Leamore area so we decided to replicate the success of a similar group that I have helped run in the Birchills area for many years.”
“By coordinating the services of the council, police and the residents committee at the TMO we hope to make real improvements for the residents and businesses of Leamore. But any group is only as good as the people that are involved so we are asking people to join up and help us deliver a better Leamore for all.”
Meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each month and organisers can be contacted on 07713 669706.
