About TheVillage.co - and how to contact us

TheVillage.co, like its physical sister The Village magazine, aims to enhance the communities of this lovely bit of the world.

We will update the news day by day - and sometimes minute by minute, if there is something happening.

And we want you tell us what's happening in your village (basically anywhere in Bromsgrove district) so we can tell everyone else.

TheVillage.co will forever be a work in progress. Its flexibility means we can change things quite easily, so let us know if there's anything you hate or anything that you'd like to see.

You can email the Editor

or call us on 0121 445 6757
