Landing in Ladywood: The Reservoir Wellbeing Centre

On a field overlooking Edgbaston Reservoir we are building a community space for the people of Ladywood and beyond. The Reservoir Wellbeing Centre is due to open later this month!

 

The building is just off

Selwyn Road and will 

be accessible from

the path around

the reservoir. Many of you

have already seen the work.

We are committed to a green build. Drilling down 100 metres is a messy business, but the heat and energy that comes out is clean, eco-friendly, and will keep our Wellbeing Centre cosy and warm!

Our contractor Ian Barney explains how much work has gone into getting the field ready to become a centre of community activity:

But that's not all - we have bolder ambitions

  • A 2nd building for growing and “mucking about”
  • Crops on the field, to supply local business and support local people
  • An outdoor amphitheatre – a place for creativity to flourish
  • A biodome – to bring together the flora of the world

Our Chief Executive Martin Holcombe talks through the new Wellbeing Centre at Edgbaston Reservoir and what will follow from that.
