Taking off from Birmingham Airport in June 2024

Leaving Birmingham Airport on a Ryanair Boeing 737 8200 for Santander Airport in Spain on Friday 21st June 2024. An early start, for the 6am BST flight. Managed to get the window seat going to Spain. But coming back had the aisle seat. Was a clear view of Birmingham City Centre taking off. Ended up landing in Spain to rain!

Taking off from Birmingham Airport in June 2024





Leaving Birmingham Airport on a Ryanair Boeing 737 8200 for Santander Airport in Spain on Friday 21st June 2024. An early start, for the 6am BST flight. Managed to get the window seat going to Spain. But coming back had the aisle seat. Was a clear view of Birmingham City Centre taking off. Ended up landing in Spain to rain! 


Friday 21st June 2024

With no sleep, we got the taxi to Birmingham Airport after 2am. The Ryanair check-in was self check-in with the hold luggage. Then up to security! No queues before the lifts. So when we got upstairs, the queues around security took around 40 minutes to clear before we reached Duty Free and the Departure Lounge. Our Ryanair flight to Santander Airport left shortly after 6am BST. For the Basque Country holiday (coach tours and walking trips around San Sebastian, Burgos, Bilbao, also Pamplona, and into France to Bayonne, and the La Rhune train, on one day). Mixed weather rain some days, sunshine others.

 

There is new West Midlands artwork near the gates, but found it hard to get without people in the way, so just at the time made an in camera panoramic.

After leaving the Departure Lounge for the Gate, it was sunrise (we left home in darkness in the taxi). Was TUI and KLM planes outside.

Heading to the gate, saw a Ryanair plane outside the window.

This was probably our flight to Santander.

After showing the boarding pass and passport to Ryanair staff (was a long queue, even for Non Priority), you head out down some stairs and outside, then heading to the rear door of the plane.

The morning sunrise from the plane window.

Here we are taking off with Ryanair Boeing 737 8200 over the City of Birmingham shortly after 6am BST.

Zooming in was a bit hard to focus, but could see the BT Tower and other landmarks as we headed up to the clouds.

The Library of Birmingham was the last thing I spotted before we left the Midlands.

The last major thing to see in Birmingham was an HS2 site at Washwood Heath.

Friday 28th June 2024

We left Bilbao in Spain in the coach before 6am CEST, to head back to Santander Airport. Raining again. The coach ride in the rain and darkness, we reach Santander Airport shortly after 7am CEST. Santander Airport is smaller and much quieter than Birmingham Airport, security didn't take as long to get through. The departures area only has one Duty Free shop and cafe. As I had to sit in the aisle seat, I couldn't get any window views from the Ryanair plane back to Birmingham. We landed just before 10:30am BST. Got this view of a Air France plane before heading to Arrivals, Passport Control and baggage claim.

dndimg alt="Birmingham Airport" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Air%20France%20BHX%2028062024.jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

 

By the time we left the airport with our luggage, it was just before 11am BST. The tent canopy things for the departure security queues were empty as we got a taxi back home.

Across the entire West Midlands, more communities are being empowered to nurture pride of place in a major digital initiative

Across the entire West Midlands, more communities are being empowered to nurture pride of place in a major digital initiative





Let us introduce you to the most innovative, pioneering and sustainable digital initiative ever to be devised as a collaboration between community, business and the public sector.  


Using a digital product called Community Passport, the entire West Midlands region is being mapped in a neighbourhood led programme that empowers, equips and skills people in the shaping and promotion of the places they live in and grow up in.

dndimg alt="" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/west mids map 2.jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

dndimg alt="" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Community Passport v1.jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

With a regional focus and digital devices at every location where people meet or make their travel connections, projections are that views of our digital content will increase from between 60,000 and 100,000 to over 500,000 every month.  The support this will give to the region, economically and socially, will be huge. 

dndimg alt="" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/tram stop.jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

 

dndimg alt="" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/whats close by.jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

Every neighbourhood, by having access to a Community Passport and with the option of setting up its own Centre for Pride of Place, will be engaged and involved in creating and sharing their own content that can be used in the shaping and promotion of their neighbourhood.  

dndimg alt="" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/CPOPs plus Centre.jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

Here are the locations of the first Centres for Pride of Place we propose opening along the Metro line between Birmingham and Wolverhampton.

dndimg alt="" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/tram line v3.jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

This will result, we predict, in a 5% increase in the volume of trips made by residents to experience what their region offers and will dramatically increase the number of visitors coming to the region.  The Pride of Place generated by engaging and involving community will result in an increase in businesses locating to the region, an increase in the value of real estate and greater investment in the West Midlands.

Birmingham's real estate is already mapped and featured

Take the link HERE to view our map of Birmingham's real estate

dndimg alt="" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/real estate 1(1).jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

A platform dedicated to the coverage of all of Birmingham's real estate can be found at www.ItsyourBuild.com 

dndimg alt="" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/web site 1.jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

Developments that engage and involve the local community we will feature as Centres for Pride of Place.  By inviting the local community to follow the build, this rich locally created content we can process and map at It's your Build, a public expression of the pride people have in the buildings rising up around them. 

dndimg alt="" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/when you need it.jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

Birmingham's culture, and increasingly its hospitality, is mapped, featured and searchable

Take the link HERE to view our map of Birmingham's culture.  

dndimg alt="" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/city centre map 1.jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

dndimg alt="" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/searchable maps.jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

Every neighbourhood will be mapped and showcased in this totally inclusive initiative.

HERE for example is Sparkbrook mapped and featured. 

dndimg alt="" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/sparkbrook mapped.jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

In Sparkbrook, as with all the region's neighbourhoods, there is some wonderful culture and great community assets to introduce people to.  The maps are not just for people who live in the area to see what's on offer, but aimed at everyone, inside and outside the West Midlands. 

For example here's a wonderful open green space in Sparkbrook called Farm Park.  Take the link HERE for our coverage of Farm Park.

dndimg alt="" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/B342388E-03AB-4A97-99AE-1A418D75702F.jpeg" style="width: 100%;" />

How many people knew that Sampson Lloyd, founder of Lloyds Bank. lived in Sparkbrook.  Now, more people do.  Go HERE for more images. 

dndimg alt="" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/FB1D7259-E98A-4B0C-8F81-9D9B4EE8389D.jpeg" style="width: 100%;" />

There's amazing art on the outside of the Concord Youth Centre. 

dndimg alt="" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/A6D9499D-A4F6-4DEF-AC36-DDF8822F72CA.jpeg" style="width: 100%;" />

There's some great history in the classic architecture across Sparkbrook.

dndimg alt="" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/0AB78F5A-5AFD-4D92-B509-05142A7111F9.jpeg" style="width: 100%;" />

There's a Peace Garden in memory of those who lost their lives at the Carlton Cinema. 

dndimg alt="" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/D6F5A609-5433-48FB-9BE9-8E4E16CAAC4B.jpeg" style="width: 100%;" />

The rich culture of Ladypool Road can be mapped as more businesses get involved. 

dndimg alt="" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/5836D8E5-957C-460B-BA5C-49AD20D1DE19.jpeg" style="width: 100%;" />

By mapping and featuring major developments taking place such as this housing development by Morro Partnerships on Highgate Road, more people can be engaged and involved in the future of their neighbourhoods. 

dndimg alt="" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/F2EBDD95-AEDC-4B3A-8835-3358D5961913.jpeg" style="width: 100%;" />

All of this with a community that's engaged and involved because they are empowered and given the tools and the support they need to help shape and promote the places around them. 

dndimg alt="" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/40113DA6-AA1E-402E-A78C-A560192B6C85.jpeg" style="width: 100%;" />

Centres for Pride of Place to spring up all over the region

With more mapping of neighbourhoods, and with more Centres for Pride of Place opening up to engage and involve people in the rich culture around them, just think what this can bring to local communities, to cities and towns and to the region, socially and economically.

dndimg alt="empowered communities link" dndsrc="https://www.yourplaceyourspace.com/uploadedfiles/POP.jpg" />

An Academy and A Society for Pride of Place

Within Community Passport is everything needed for gathering and analysing the rich insight that will come from all those engaged and involved in nurturing Pride of Place.

dndimg alt="" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/surveys and polls.jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

dndimg alt="" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/analysis(1).jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

With both an Academy and a Society for Pride of Place, this wealth of valuable insight will be pooled, analysed and made available for all to use in the drive for more cohesive and inclusive communities, improved health and wellbeing and shared prosperity.

Victoria Square - Public Realm Works - June 2024 update





Had an opportunity to go up to the top of Three Chamberlain Square thanks to an invite by Paradise Birmingham. So here is views to Victoria Square, Colmore Row and Waterloo Street with the on-going Public Realm Works. Colmore Row looks complete, but new bollards covered over. Waterloo Street is half done.


Thank you to Paradise Birmingham for the invite on the 10th June 2024.

General views of Victoria Square over Birmingham Town Hall from the top of Three Chamberlain Square, including the Floozie in the Jacuzzi (River and Youth), the fountains and pools still flowing. Also scaffolding is up Waterloo House near Nandos.

Colmore Row as far as Newhall Street and Bennetts Hill has been completely relaid, with new bollards. The cones were still out at the time. I wonder if after this bit is done, if they will need to complete the rest between Victoria Square and Colmore Square past Cathedral Square (where the buses stop).

Waterloo Street is partially repaved, there is a lot left to do here near Adams and the Lost & Found. This also goes as far as Bennetts Hill.

dndimg alt="Waterloo Street" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Waterloo%20St%203CS%2010062024.JPG" style="width: 100%;" />

 

New Street from Victoria Square to Rotunda Square is in urgent need of repaving. It was pedestrianised in the 1990s, and the bricks keep getting dug up and relaid. Plus some of the Metro paving near Corporation Street (dating to 2015-16) is all cracked and broken, and also needs fixing. This is all due to cars, vans and lorries driving up and down (deliveries, police etc).

Visit to the National Motorcycle Museum

On the Spring Bank Holiday Monday morning, had a visit to the National Motorcycle Museum in Bickenhill, Solihull. Closed to Birmingham Airport and The NEC. M42, Junction 6 and A45 Coventry Road at the Bickenhill Interchange. Five halls with British built motorcycles, from the early 20th century until at least the 1970s, with some from recent decades. A quiet place to visit.
