Labelling Redditch ‘the Bronx’ is village snobbery

Posted on April 29 2015 at 11:18:34

I’ve just been reading the Village Views section in the April edition, and my eyes were drawn to the comments made by Tom Molloy of Alvechurch.

His comment on “the Bronx of Redditch“ again showed the snob factor of Alvechurch – which was one of the reasons I didn’t buy a house there.

I was raised in Redditch and my family still lives in Redditch. It’s far from perfect, yes, this is true, but Alvechurch is no holy land.

I can’t believe you would allow this to be put in the magazine – it’s one person’s opinion and you have allowed him to have his five minutes of fame.

Also there are many good schools in Redditch; I myself went through the system there and I didn’t turn out that bad.
