Rowney Green fields vote

An impasse over who should manage the playing fields and facilities at Rowney Green is closer to being resolved.
Trustees of the neighbouring Rowney Green Village Hall had offered to take over the task, saying they believed a proposal by Alvechurch Parish Council, which owns the fields, for joint management of the site was unworkable.
After a presentation by the trustees, parish chairman Marc Worrall said he had “misgivings” because the council needed to consider the needs of residents of the whole of the parish, but he added: “I must confess that the presentation was most welcoming.”
After a lengthy discussion, parish councillors agreed and voted unanimously that they were prepared to grant a lease to the trustees, subject to acceptable terms being drawn up.
