Event Postponement: Archaeology webinar about exciting discoveries from our Birmingham Curzon Street site rescheduled to 1pm – 2pm, Wed 3 June

Unfortunately, we have to postpone tomorrow’s planned webinar. We are sorry for any inconvenience caused and hope that you are still able to join us next week.

The Archaeology of HS2 – Uncovering the Curzon Street roundhouse, will now be broadcast live from 1pm – 2pm on Wednesday 3 June.  All tickets will still be valid for the session on 3 June so if you have already registered, you do not need to do so again.

Hosted by HS2’s Historic Environment team, this webinar will focus on the unearthing of what is thought to be the world’s oldest railway roundhouse at our Birmingham Curzon Street construction site earlier this year. The webinar will feature previously unseen photographs, footage and imagery captured during archaeological excavations earlier this year. You will be able to ask the team questions via a live Q&A chat option.

Tickets are still available for the event. Register your interest in attending this online event.

We will be publishing video recordings of each webinar online, so if you are not able to listen live you can still learn about our archaeological work through a dedicated playlist on the HS2 YouTube channel.

For more information about this event or any of our forthcoming events please contact our HS2 Helpdesk team on 08081 434 434 or email hs2enquiries@hs2.org.uk.

Calling All Town Centre Businesses

We would like to hear from you if your business is located within a North Warwickshire Market Town of either; Coleshill, Atherstone or Polesworth.

In light of the Covid -19 pandemic, and as talk of easing lockdown restrictions dominate the headlines, thoughts are naturally turning to the slow process of recovery.

Whilst we are mindful that the likely impact on the Borough will be significant, North Warwickshire Borough Council would like to check in with town centre partnerships, organisations and businesses to try and understand what the recovery period may look like, what challenges you will face, how you’re planning for this transition period and what support will be required.

We have therefore created a survey for businesses that are located within the town centres, which will help in a co-ordinated approach and understanding more about the recovery process.  The survey, along with some other useful information, can be found here on our website – https://www.northwarks.gov.uk/info/20131/towns_and_villages/1530/town_centres_-_covid-19_recovery  The survey will only take you a few minutes to complete, but will provide us with some extremely valuable information going forward.  We would therefore encourage you to complete the form and provide us with as much information as possible.  However, we do appreciate that you may be in the early stages of this thought process and may not have the answers to the questions asked, so please keep us updated as and when you can by contacting the Community Development Team – communitydevelopment@northwarks.gov.uk

Also, starting in June we will be working with Warwickshire County Council to create short promotional videos encouraging people to ‘buy and eat local’.  We will be looking for businesses to send in a short video, which can be filmed on their mobile phone camera.  These clips will then be stitched together to create films for both the town and the county.  We hope that these films will help to give our towns some added exposure and will reach audiences at both a local and county-wide level.  We hope to send a short sample film to you in the coming weeks.

 

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us on the email address above.

 

Kind regards

Rachel
