has anyone on this forum actually seen the state of perry barr... and i dont mean on street view...i have and still do...underpasses swimming in urine and littered with evidence of drug taking..shops either side a disgrace and in bad repair due to neglect...bags of ripped open bags of household rubbish line the pavements outside the shops..some are still there weeks later...beggars always sitting outside perry barr train station and a one legged female who stops traffic asking if she can clean the car windows.......and they want the worlds top athletes to see all this because no matter how much this area is tarted up it will never change...its a joke...

Lyn I'm not surprised by any stretch of the imagination , I'm still waiting to hear about the council not being able to finance some more important issue . Meanwhile they bung for something like this
If voting made any difference , they wouldn't let us do it.

That one-legged car window cleaner gets about, she's often at the Bristol Road/Belgrave Middleway junction - unless there are a herd of one legged women in the car window cleaning business...

When I lived in the area there was one old guy who used to beg outside either the pub or the bookies.  At least no one was under any illusion as to where their money was going if they gave him any. ;)
