Now Mayfield Farm looks likely to get permission to operate, I think I can speak for everyone affected by the current operation that we hope this will bring a halt to the obnoxious odours that blight our lives.

. . . Is it any wonder?

Hopwood Residents Association is very concerned that Bromsgrove District Council seems still intent on issuing licences and permits that will now allow this once-rural farm to become a commercial factory, sited not 70-odd yards or so from residential properties within the Green Belt.

May I set the record straight on the actual boundary of Blackwell and Burcot villages (or settlements as Worcestershire County Council now prefers to call us).

Power-off to the 1970s

Here follows an open letter to the Electricity Distributor E-On, Central Networks, regarding recent power outages in Alvechurch:
I am writing to thank your team for the dozen power cuts we have sustained in the last two and half months.  Recently I feel as if I have been magically transported back in time to my childhood in the 1970s.

Goodbye, Bromsgrove, hello. . .Redditch? Barnt Green, Cofton Hackett and Lickey inextricably linked to a distant new town rather than our historic market town?

I thought your readers might be interested in a little drama that has occured at Bordesley recently.
