Since lockdown began, residents have experienced a number of changes to their lives. Interestingly though, the smell of baking, motor mower and drill noises have been very apparent within the village. This suggests that the preparation of good food, DIY projects and garden transformations have all been on our agendas.

We would love for all residents to share your work and hope that it will inspire them to undertake their own projects.

If you have been working hard at home during the lockdown, please send us your photographs to

Many thanks


Dear Resident,

Albeit in its early stages, Coronavirus will have a major negative impact on us all and the manner in which we conduct our lives. In particular, senior citizens and the vulnerable will be at the greatest risk.

The Government guidance will see the elderly self-isolating and during this time, they will experience limited contact with the added risk of essential supplies running short.

In order to identify those in need of help, the Residents Association will supply all residents with two visuals for display in a prominent window. The green visual will signal that all is well and the red visual that support is needed.

Clearly, “face to face” conversations are not advised, but if you come across a red visual being displayed, please make every effort to contact the resident and offer them support.

We thank you for your anticipated help.

Litter Pick – 7th July 2019

Cheswick Green Residents Litter Pick – July 2019

The Litter Pick was well supported by residents, who collected 20 bags of rubbish and helped to make our village a lot tidier. Suffice to say, the bulk of activity was centred around the shops.

Thanks go to Solihull Council who provided the essential tools and organised disposal of the rubbish.

It is hoped that the next Litter Pick will attract an even bigger level of support and that a much wider area can be covered.
If residents are aware of an area in our village that would benefit from a bi-annual swoop then please let us know via the website.

Many thanks



It is with much regret that we have had to cancel this year’s Party In The Park.

The event, organised and run by CGRA members, has for many years brought Cheswick Green families together for an enjoyable evening. This has engendered our community spirit that is so treasured by most residents. We have endeavoured to comply with known legislative requirements and have always left the park clean and tidy.

This year, the Parish Council has asked that we adhere to various criteria, which despite repeated requests, the exact details have not been specified. Clearly, we cannot be held to account for rules that are non-specific.

Having now reached a time when both financial and organisational commitments have to be made, it would be a folly to carry on.
