Vaccination Update!

You may have seen that the Lyng Centre is being used as a Covid-19 Vaccination Centre. We’re being told that vaccines are going to be critical to ending  the Covid-19 pandemic – providing enough
people are vaccinated.

You need to wait until you receive an invitation for your vaccination but if you are unsure about whether to attend your appointment here is a fact sheet from a social housing landlord group that tries to address some of the concerns about the various vaccines.

Happy New Year to All Lyng Residents!

Everyone at Lyng Community Association wishes to extend our best wishes to all residents at this difficult time.

We look forward to better days ahead and a time when we can create some new memories of times like these:-

 

New Lockdown  January 2020

Once again we have to close the Lyng Office to personal visitors BUT you can still call us on 0121 525 5969 10am to 4pm Mondays to Fridays.

Please let us know if you need to report any emergency or urgent repairs.  We are working safely when on site so will need to check if anyone is shielding or isolating before we arrange any repair appointments. Some repairs may need to be rescheduled so we would ask for your understanding and co-operation whilst we  try to reduce risks during the lockdown period.

We regret we are unable to restart our community activities  during the current lockdown so Youth Club, 5 to 11 Club and Toddlers Club are all suspended until further notice.

We will of course update everyone when we are able to restart!

 

Merry Christmas to All Lyng Residents !

Christmas – Free Meal Vouchers from Sandwell Council

 

Sandwell Council will be funding free school meals to those families who are eligible during the Christmas holidays. Parents and carers in Sandwell will be contacted through their child’s school and will receive vouchers towards the cost of food for the two-week break.

Councillor Wasim Ali, Sandwell Council’s cabinet member for resources and core services, said: “We want to ensure no child goes hungry this Christmas and so by providing vouchers to eligible families we can at least help with the cost of a meal. “I encourage all those families who are eligible to take up this offer and contact their child’s school for details. I would like to thank all of our schools for their help and support in getting these vouchers to those families who need them.”

Councillor Maria Crompton, Sandwell Council’s deputy leader, said: “The pandemic has hit our families hard in Sandwell but we hope these vouchers will make things a little easier for those who are struggling this Christmas.”

Sandwell Council has budgeted £525,000 to help around 17,500 children. Eligible families will receive a voucher for £15 per week, per child.
