A huge well done to our Malvern Street Nursery catering team, Faiza and Nisa, who have yet again been awarded a 5 Star Rating! in their recent Scores on the Doors inspection.
This is a regular inspection by the Food Standards Agency, who assess the hygiene and management of food preparation of all catering establishments.

#SaveOurFarm – a meeting to discuss ways forward and how YOU can help!
We’ve had lots of kind offers from individuals to help secure a sustainable future for this #UrbanOasis, a much-needed community resource in the Inner City. So we can all pull in the same direction and work together we have arranged a meeting.
- When: Wednesday 23rd January 2019
- Where: St. Paul’s Venture
- Time: 7pm Onwards
Following extensive consultation St. Paul’s Trust has amended its mission and values to reflect the environment we are currently operating in and the challenging financial climate. Trustees are mindful of the move away from community activities and will endeavour to work with other organisations to deliver community events.
If you wish to discuss the changes please contact our Chief Executive David.Cusack@stpaulstrust.org.uk .

Opening and Closure over the 2018 Christmas Period
Balsall Heath City Farm is set to close by the end of March, unless new money can be raised to support it.
Set up by a group of residents in 1980, with just a few chickens, the farm now includes sheep, goats, rabbits, ducks, geese and turkeys. The Farm costs some £55,000 a year to run, and its parent body, St Paul’s Community Development Trust, says it can no longer afford to keep it open.
The farm is enjoyed by local children and their families, providing close up access to animals in one of Birmingham’s most deprived neighbourhoods. Visitors who came as children now bring their own little ones down to see the 50 animals that live on the Farm. Others come as volunteers to help feed the animals and grow flowers and vegetables. Entrance to the farm has always been free, but staff also run educational visits for nurseries, schools and other groups.
We are currently recruiting for a School Caterer, Teaching Assistant and a SEN Instructor (Life Skills / Employability) to work within our SEN School.
Closing date for posts: 11th January 2019 at 12 noon
