Just an update from the Council on the first week:
The contractors being paid for by Birmingham City Council are on site and finishing the clear out and boarding of the house. They should be complete early next week.
Adult services have organised a horticultural community group of people with learning difficulties to clear, tidy and prune Shakespeares garden. The Head gardener from the Victorian garden at Sandwell Park farm is advising them on the plants and how they should be cared for.
We have identified that a few young people are accessing the garden, John Satchwell has asked someone to see if anyhting can be done short term to increase security.
We have had several phone calls since the event, all positive, some calling our attention to potential issues and security.
Ben Purewel is the gentleman who owns the cctv company who wants to donate equipment. We have met and he is providing a design for the security of the house, garden and surrounding park.
