Join us for our inaugural KHCIC social on November 2

We are delighted to announce our inaugural KHCIC social in the back room in the Hare & Hounds on Thursday 2nd November from 6pm onwards.

We will begin with a quick update on recent activity at the KHCIC, followed by food, refreshments and general merriment.

We’d love to see you there and hope to formalise the arrangements for the KH Community Choir as well as setting the wheels in motion for some other plans.

Everyone is welcome, please spread the word!!!

Vote for Kings Heath Street Festival

Good morning Kings Heath! As many of you are aware the fabulous Kings Heath Street Festival did not take place this year which we feel is a great shame.

As we have the main organisers of the KHSF 2014/2015 amongst our ranks we thought we should ensure KH is not deprived of the festival in 2018.

Aviva is offering £10,000 to the community projects which get the most votes, so if you’d like to see the street festival return in 2018 please cast your 10 votes below. Please share and spread the word, there is a lot of competition.

Welcome to the KHCIC website

Hello fellow Heathens, and welcome to our brand new website. The aim of the site is many fold.

First, we want to make sure we can give as much publicity to our Christmas Light Crowdfunding campaign. You can see a link to the page and how to donate right here: khxmaslightsfund/

Second, we would like to get you guys involved. Afterall, Kings Heath Community Interest Company is made up as a partnership between businesses and the community as a whole. Our aim is to find new ways to promote the Heath and to get more people sharing ideas. If you would like to be involved or have ideas for what can be done etc, then please use our lovely new contact form: kingsheathcic.co.uk/contact/

One of the other things we wish to do with the site is keep you updated on current projects and public meetings and you can do this at the blog page and the minutes page.

So please take the time to explore and don’t forget to donate to the Christmas Lights Crowdfund and share the page with others.

Finally, we would like to mention Emma Page from Nineteen76-Designs who has built the site for us.

Emma Page has been instrumental in getting the KHCIC website up and running. In under a week from when we first discussed the project with Emma she has managed to populate the website and get it live. We cannot thank her enough for helping us through the process and leaving us with a great site that we are proud to publicise. We couldn’t speak more highly of Emma – thanks again for your help.

Minutes now available from 3 Oct public meeting

Great to see so many enthusiastic and willing KH folk at this evening’s meeting – thanks so much to all of you who were able to be there. A brief summary of some of the action points relating to #LightUpKH.

1: We will have flyers printed by the end of the week to raise awareness, please let us know if you’d be willing to distribute on your road (or beyond…)
2: We will coordinate a plan to ask businesses to sponsor a lamppost and get the ball rolling in the next few days
3: We will clarify all the info on raffles in coming days.

REMEMBER – we WILL be putting lights on in KH this year, the target date on our crowdfunding page is just when we have to inform the council by.
