Speakers: Kate Roach, Barnardos and Maria Affinito, NCH Action for Children will deliver a joint presentation on the records held about babies and children adopted from Hong Kong under the ISS overseas adoption programme in the 1960’s. They will tell us what information is held, and the process for obtaining it.
Ian Henery, a Midlands lawyer specialising in providing immigration advice to the Chinese community in Birmingham, will outline the criteria and process for acquiring the Hong Kong ID card, the right of abode in Hong Kong and the right to enter mainland China.
Café Soya, Upper Dean Street, Birmingham
CCC-B is allowing us to use the venue free of charge.
Refreshments & lunch will cost approximately £6 per head, payable in cash on registration. We will be able to give you an exact figure nearer the time.
We have booked a private room at Café Soya, with an unlimited buffet at £16.50 per head (children half price). Drinks are extra – people are responsible for their own drinks bill.
The space is one half of a larger room, and holds 30 people. If bookings exceed 30, we will ask the restaurant to reserve the whole party room for us.
Where to stay:
Some people have already booked accommodation at the Premier Inn, Birmingham Central East. This is just off Junction 6, M6. It is not walking distance to the meeting venue, but it is a quiet location.
If you prefer to stay in the city centre near to the restaurant, Premier Apartments are above Café Soya and there is a Travel Lodge next door to it.
If you want to stay near the Chinese Community Centre, the independent Paragon Hotel is round the corner
