On Thursday 28th June Birmingham became the victim of climate chaos after experiencing extreme weather conditions, a months worth of rain falling in less than an hour causing the river which runs along side the social centre to burst its banks. In less than half and hour the building was knee deep in water with its residents having to quickly evacuate it.

After a few days of hard work over the weekend the social centre has now reopened
