Just need a heads up for later

Haunch Close I'm assuming is somewhere off Haunch Lane which is in the Billesley area.

This area is multi racial but not too bad, Sue when to secondry school there (Swanshurts Grammer)

What time etc.?

Those are new houses/flats at the bottom of hollybank road. It's a bit council around there but no problems. At the top of hollybank road on Wheelers lane the houses are 350k+

Karl will be ok. Ive assured him his car and his life are safe

I lived at 98 mossfield. Your relatives would have been 5 doors down when i was there!

I'm just off the Stratford Rd. Behind where the BP Garage is on the old MOD/Transco site

Used to have a school in Yardley Wood (2mins from Billesley), some fantastic people around there. Some not so nice as well, bit like every area I suppose!

Kings Heath was classed as the posh area by the people of Yardley Wood...... And the head of the school certainly thought it was a posh area!!

Druids Heath however........
