Goldenhill Community Centre in Proposed Transfer Bid

Stoke on Trent City Council has contacted Sandyford & Goldenhill Residents Association (S.A.G.E.), along with Councillor Chandra Kanneganti in regards to an asset transfer of Goldenhill Community Hall/Centre to a local charity.

The charity “Just Family” http://justfamily-cic.org/ have shown an interest in taking over the running of the building from the council to enhance the services they provide. Concerns have been raised by S.A.G.E. and Councillor Kanneganti to what kind of input the local community would have should the Community Centre be transferred to a third party.

Upon talks with the City Council, it has been assured that any organisation taking charge of the Community Centre would have to honour the groups using the building with the same terms and conditions it presently holds.

The council further added that no final decision has been made in regards to the asset transfer, but said whatever decision is made the building will stay in use for the benefit of the community.

The City Council believe that transferring the Community Centre to a charity would bring much needed investment into the building, and would further benefit the community at large.

It was further reported that the Community Centre will continue to be owned by the council and will return to them at the end of any lease, adding that if a transfer is agreed it will continue to remain as a Community Centre.

Councillor Kanneganti and Sandyford & Goldenhill Residents Association are jointly committed to scrutinise any decision made by the council to ensure Goldenhill Community Centre stays as a venue for it’s residents.

Increase in Construction Work, James Brindley Way

There is due to be an increase in construction work noise on James Brindley Way, Sandyford, which will affect many residences on Brindley Village and the nearby Ridge Road Estate.

Caddick have asked Sandyford & Goldenhill Residents Association (S.A.G.E.) to share the information with local residents that the “Piling process” will commence next Tuesday 18th January 2022 with a duration period of approximately 3 weeks with a start time of 8.00 a.m.

Caddick have said there will be a further piling period taking place later in the year, and once they have a date they will keep residents updated.

S.A.G.E. has reminded the contractor not to use the piling process over the weekend in regards to respecting residents wishes, which they have confirmed they will not.

Construction Work Update – James Brindley Way

Caddick who are constructing the new development on James Brindley Way, Sandyford have contacted the residents association with an update on future works at the location.

The contractor has reported they have had a slow start to the development due to recent wet weather conditions before Christmas, and with an improvement in the forthcoming weather; they will be working throughout the day for the next four Saturday’s to catch up with lost time.

Caddick have confirmed the Saturday weekend working will not consist of any heavy sounding noise as in past “piling” during the suggested four Saturday workings.

It is good to remember that Caddick are to update residents regularly through Sandyford & Goldenhill Residents Association social media pages of www.sandyfordgoldenhill.co.uk and Facebook.

Traffic Calming Scheme, KFC Roundabout

Sandyford & Goldenhill Residents Association (S.A.G.E.) along with Councillor Chandra Kanneganti have been in contact with Council Highways to discuss traffic calming measures at the Sandyford KFC roundabout.

The Highways Department are looking into the proposals put forward by S.A.G.E. and the councillor, which consist of improved road markings leading onto the roundabout that will help ease congestion at busy times.

It is a positive step forward that Highways are listening to it’s councillor and residents association in a joint attempt to direct traffic safely around the roundabout and making it safer for everyone to use.

CATastrophe Rescue

Today Sandyford Fire Station were called out to save a cat which found itself stuck at the top of a fragile bendy tree; where it was unable to jump down to safety.

As we know this is the other side of Staffordshire Fire & Rescue, instead of putting out fires they were there to help save one of our feeline friends who was in distress near to the “Tin Tunnel” just off James Brindley Way, Sandyford.

Fire fighters firstly tried to collect the cat by using a ladder, but eventually they succeeded the safe collection of the cat by bending the tree, which enabled it to fall into the arms of it’s heroine.                                                                                                               

Memories of Drummond Street, Goldenhill

Pictured right is Drummond Street, Goldenhill before it’s demolition back in the 1960’s.

The picture shows how comminity spirit was back in the middle of the last centrury where residents could leave their front doors open without the fear of being burgled, and when neighbours could pop around for a chat and a cup of tea.

Times are much different now and in place of a terraced street there is the much loved Community Centre, and the previous St John’s Vicarage which aline the now more modern Drummond Street.

Volunteers Support COVID Clinic

Sandyford & Goldenhill Residents Association Committee Members along with other volunteers are supporting Goldenhill Medical Centre staff to deliver over 1,000 COVID booster vaccinations each day over a three day period. The volunteers will be marshalling the car park’s to make sure everyone is made safe by directing vehicles to a safe place of parking.

The clinic is open to anyone requiring a vaccination tomorrow Tuesday 21st December, Wednesday 22nd December and Wednesday 29th December. The clinics are open from 8.30 a.m. to 7.00 p.m.

Anyone who is eligible for a booster jab is encouraged to come along to one of these clinics.

Our thanks go to the volunteers for giving up their free time to make sure each of the day’s clinic’s run as smoothly as possible.
