The asbestos work has finally been signed off and the plumbers have begun their work. I have been assured that those in the Handsworth flats should have heating and hot water by the end of next week (21st November) and the New Building soon thereafter. All of this depends on work going according to plan, but everyone is fully aware that getting heat back is urgent so we will keep the pressure on and do all in our power to speed even this timetable up. In the meantime I want to assure residents in the flats that they should not stint on using the radiators as we will ensure that you are not out of pocket for doing so. If anyone needs more assistance please let me and Alex know.
