( Cllr Sue Anderson, Cllr Paul Tisley & Cllr Mike Ward)

There is a Sheldon Ward committee meeting this Wednesday 11th February at the Community Centre in Sheldon Heath Road at 7.00pm. Come along and find out what is happening in the Sheldon Ward, it is also an opportunity for you to meet your local Councillors raise any concerns you may have.

We pride ourselves in Sheldon in probably getting the most attendees at our ward meetings than at of the other ward meetings across the city, this shows we care as to what happens in our area. It is always a lively event, so why give the telly a miss and come along and get involved and try to make a difference.

They are a very welcome asset to our area. It is also great to see life being breathed back into the well-preserved Eastbourne House, built in 1858. It has been a school since 1948 and the word on the street is that Nigel Mansell CBE is a former pupil (Have any other locals heard this?) It closed as a private Infant and Junior school in 2007 and was worryingly empty until Kimichi School purchased it and opened it as a school for children 11+ with a passion for music.

The Housing Liaison Board has recently funded new fencing and gating for the scheme as well as new porches for two of the blocks.
