Views from the Past

We liked people parking outside our house

We live on the end of Fiery Hill Road in Barnt Green, just past the station.

Have The Meadows been short-changed?

On the subject of wanting to reduce the bogginess of The Meadows playing fields in Alvechurch, I would like to offer the following information gleaned during my tenure as clerk to the Wiggin Memorial/Alvechurch Playing Field Trust that looks after the Meadows. 

A few bright ideas

I read your article about there being no Alve­church Alight, which is a shame really – I wasn’t a massive fan of it, but it got the village up and doing something.

Thanks to the ‘snowmen’

On the afternoon of Friday February 9, I, like many others, got caught out by the “unexpected second snowstorm” of the week.

I have been reading the article in The Village magazine concerning the state of the football pitch in The Meadows playing field.

For some reason known only to them, the binmen left our bags of rubbish on the pavement last Tuesday morning near the centre of Alvechurch.

Disabled drivers penalised

I would like to alert other disabled motorists to the new charging policy in Bromsgrove after being given a £60 parking fine even though I was displaying my Blue Badge and timer.

Communication at last?

I do so agree with Coun Hollingsworth’s views on what should happen between the councils (The Village, February 2007).

A place for childhood

When I read an extract from the February issue of The Village magazine I was very dismayed to learn of the state of The Meadows, and the fear that it may become worse.

Young players need a pitch

Having read the report in the local press about the problem of the Alvechurch playing fields being constantly waterlogged, I have strong views about the need for this problem to be eradicated.
