Young and Old Work Together in North Solihull

Members of the Castle Bromwich Community Project were part of the organising team for the recent Intergenerational Question Time held at the Loft Room, Chelmsley Wood. Both the audience and expert panel consisted of young and old, the oldest being born in 1929 and the youngest in 1995,

A cross-generational audience quizzed a panel of experts at the “Question Time” style event organised by a group of younger and older residents working together to improve intergenerational relationships.

Anti-social behaviour, fear of crime, parks and green spaces and bridging the generation gap were the topics discussed at the event which was hosted by best selling author Andy Cope. The audience had prepared questions ranging from what role the community could play in helping to eradicate anti-social behaviour, what was being done to maintain services in the light of public service cuts, to why Castle Bromwich couldn’t have an adventure playground similar to that recently built in Meriden Park.

On the panel answering questions were Nicola Holmes from Solihull Youth Council, Georgina Taylor – Solihull Youth Council, Ian Bromley –Solihull Youth Council, Chief Inspector Wharmby – Solihull Local Policing Unit, Anne Brereton – Director of Places Solihull Council and Beth Mears a Young Carer.
