When we were setting up home neighbours were helpful. Also there used to be some great pubs in Birmingham which have been sadly depleted. People in Brum are generally generous spirited and helpful.. I just wish the City Centre had more green spaces. Apart from that there is Victorian history and architecture, a variety of activities and entertainment and great shopping.

I went to Moseley Secondary School in the 70s and 80s. I was lucky enough to learn about the world through people from different backgrounds: Long term Brummies; those with families from India, Italy Ireland, the Caribbean; and those who had fled Uganda and Iran. I’m not saying there wasn’t racism then, that, and sexism, were rife. But in our friendship group, culture and religion weren’t an issue, we were united as citizens of Birmingham – most of us still are.

I am a 21 years old local lad who was born and bred in our great city of Birmingham. I am still living in the yardley area with my parents. I recently turned professional boxer and I have been looking for sponsors in the local area and have been amazed how many people/companies have been willing to help me pursue my career. I am truly grateful and proud to be from BIRMINGHAM. The mix of culture and diversity is what makes this city so special. Thank you people of Birmingham from a Brummie kid 😃

I came to Birmingham area to be with my girl friend whom I have since married. A job opportunity came up in Birmingham and its been the best career choice I have ever made. Not only the opportunities with work but to get to know what Birmingham has to offer, culture, architecture, good eating establishments, excellent educational opportunities and good transport links. A city with a vision to improve facilities for the future.

I was drawn into Birmingham by the opportunity to attend the University of Birmingham. I stayed because Birmingham made me welcome, because there were great places to live, people to do things with and secrets to discover. But there is so much more that it could offer – the whole region’s potential for change, for shaping the world of tomorrow, is massive, I want to be a part of that, so here I stay.
