Back to Backs Birmingham – Clive Katz

The Birmingham Back to Backs are the city's last surviving court of back-to-back houses. They are preserved as examples of the thousands of similar houses that were built around shared courtyards, for the rapidly increasing population of Britain's expanding industrial towns. They are a very particular sort of British terraced housing. This sort of housing was deemed unsatisfactory, and the passage of the Public Health Act 1875 meant that no more were built; instead byelaw terraced houses took their place. This court, at 50–54 Inge Street and 55–63 Hurst Street, is now operated as a historic house museum by the National Trust.

All welcome. If you would like more details please contact Shirley on 01789 773366.

Cakes 4 Casualties - Kath Ryan

Cakes 4 Casualties started in 2009, albeit rather accidentally! The Cake Lady, known to others as Kath Ryan, was visiting her sister in Selly Oak Hospital. She decided to try and cheer her up by baking her some cakes. Kath’s sister shared the cakes with the injured soldiers at the smoking hut, the cheeky chappies said “Ask your sister to bring us some cakes on S4!” Kath found this amusing and went ahead with their wishes…She baked 12 dozen different flavored cakes and took them to the Hospital. The soldiers at the hospital were very keen to meet this mysterious cake baking lady, so Kath went down to the ward and was struck by their courage, humor and cheek! After 2 weeks Kath phoned up the hospital to see if the lads would like some more cake and the nurse said “Would they ever! All we have heard is ‘do you think she’ll come back!?’”.

All welcome. If you would like more details please contact Shirley on 01789 773366.
