Gisela Stuart helped launch the first Birmingham Heritage Week at an event in Parliament this week, that highlighted the key activities taking place across the city and to thank all the organisations, societies and volunteers who have helped put it together and will be taking part.
From exhibitions and concerts to trails and talks, Birmingham’s first Heritage Week will offer visitors and participants a fascinating insight into the diversity of the city’s culture.
Local resident, Roy Watson, has scooped the award for Campaigning Achievement, for his services to cycling in Birmingham, including the production of a new map illustrating the potential for cycling tourism in the City.
CTC, the national cycling charity presented Roy with the award in recognition of his work to inspire people to cycle.
Team Gisela is people who care about our community. Some are Labour Party members - some are not. What binds us together is a shared feeling that things can be better than they are and we come together to make them happen. So if you have half an hour a month or more come and join us! There's something to do for everyone - from collecting signatures for a petition, delivering leaflets for an event, or phoning people to join a community clean up.
