STIRCHLEY LIDL PROTEST!
When: 12 noon, Sat 11 February (for 30 minutes)
Where: In the car park of the Fitness First*
What to bring: yourself, banners, a strong voice, lots of people!
Why: we want to send a strong, clear message that Lidl is not wanted if it means sacrificing popular local fitness/leisure facilities.
What you can do: share news of this protest as widely as you can and sign the petition now over 2000 signatures strong.
Join us in a protest against Birmingham City Council’s U-turn on 22 December allowing Lidl to knock down Stirchley’s only local leisure/fitness facilities: the Fitness First Gym and PSL Bowling Alley. Join us if you’re worried about Stirchley being overrun by supermarkets. Join us if you’re tired of Tesco’s wasteland and empty promises. Join us if you think Birmingham City Council planning committee has let Stirchley down and not properly considered the impact on jobs, traffic, fitness, leisure, independent shops and community culture – or the many comments and complaints of local people.
In short, join us if you want to Stand Up For Stirchley. Come and make some noise!
*please be mindful of traffic – safety first!
