The sister of Hope Fennell, the Queensbridge pupil killed on Kings Heath High Street last year, has appealed for local people to back a campaign to improve road safety.
Thirteen year old Hope was killed in an accident last November when she was hit by a lorry on the High Street outside Asda. Her family will talk about the circumstances surrounding the incident at a meeting of Kings Heath Residents Forum on Tuesday evening.
In a special message to AboutMyArea Hope's 23 year old sister Melody, an account executive from Moseley, called for support from local people.
"My beloved sister was tragically killed. My family and I are now working towards improving road safety on Kings Heath High Street," she said.
Hope Fennell was one of four children. She also had a 16 year old sister, Paris, who is at St George's school and a 15 year old brother, Leo, who is at Ninestiles.
They will join a discussion about ways the community can work towards improving the safety of pedestrians and cyclists on the High Street. The meeting is at Kings Heath Community Centre, Heathfield Road at 7.45 pm on Tuesday.
