Sparkbrook to Springfield – 11/02/12

Catrina (and Tariq, below) were on their way to see family in Sparkbrook today. She is originally from Sheldon, west of the city centre, but has recently moved in with Tariq… [40]

…Tariq (with Catrina, above) is currently training as a courier driver and was as excited about moving in with his girlfriend. We both nagged Catrina about work aspirations. [40]

Abdul is currently training as a dental technician and has already arranged future work in Sparkbrook, whilst hoping to own a practise one day. He has been in the UK for 6 years and is originally from Somalia. [162]

Mick was visiting his parents today in Sparkbrook where they have lived for around 30 years. Whilst currently unemployed, Mick is a Gardener/Groundsman by trade. [664]

Sugar was on his way home after visiting his kids in Sparkhill. He was going to walk back to Acocks Green but the ‘crisp’ weather persuaded him to catch a bus instead. [610]
