From 2nd March 2015 the S2 and S4 routes will combine to
become a through-service between Dorridge and Cheswick
Green. Both services will operate via Solihull Town
Centre and Solihull Rail Station.
Changes to the S4 Bus
The S2 will become a Cheswick Green to Dorridge service.
The S4 will become a Dorridge to Cheswick Green service.
The S4 towards Cheswick Green will not serve Station Rd
and Poplar Rd stops, due to roadworks. Buses will stop
at Stop ST Warwick Rd, then continue along Warwick Rd
and Lode Lane to Solihull Rail Station and Cheswick

Coming soon - Cheswick Green in bloom - prize for the
best front garden. Judging to take place the week before
party in the park. Prize to be up to £50 (hopefully with
additional support from a local garden centre) to
increase total prize. More to follow.
Cheswick Green in Bloom
Cheswick Green has its own parish council for which
households pay an additional sum on their council tax
called a precept. Currently for a house in Band D this
is £47.55 and the budget for 2015/16 is just under
Your Parish Council Needs
Once again the parish council has agreed to maintain the
current level of precept without increase.
Cheswick Green Parish Council has asked Solihull
Metropolitan Borough Council to consider an increase in
the number of councillors from 5 to 7 as there could be
occasions when there were not enough councillors in
attendance to be quorate and make decisions. Also a
planned increase in housing and work on a Neighbourhood
Plan will lead to increased workload. A public
consultation was held and 5 responses were received from
local residents out of an electorate of 1,940. See
Should the final decision be taken to increase the
number of councillors, the additional seats will
hopefully be filled at the elections on 7th May 2015. As
there were no new applications for councillors in 2011
existing councillors were elected unopposed and the last
formal election was in 2009 when the council was formed.
If you have an interest in the future of Cheswick Green
and the surrounding area maybe you should consider
running for parish council.

PARTY IN THE PARK 2015
Hi all, after a lengthy discussion tonight, I
am pleased to advise that it has been unanimously
decided that Party in the Park 2015 just has to
Although the decision has been made to proceed, as
previously mentioned we really do need more volunteers
to help set up, run the party and help take it all down
and clear up at the end of the night. This is a very
important event for our village and something that pulls
the community together, something that we feel must
continue. So if you can help please let us know here or
of course come down to the CGRA meeting on the 1st
Wednesday of each month.
In the meantime - get those diaries out .....the date of
party in the park is yet to be finalised but will be
happening on either 4th or 11th July 2015. I will advise
the date once confirmed.
I'm sure you will all agree - this really is great news.
