When the offer of money to finally drain The Meadows in Alvechurch disappeared in a quagmire of mysterious last-minute conditions last year, you could have forgiven those left disappointed if they had just given in.

In response to the letter “Overrun by affordable homes”, I too am disgusted – at the author’s ignorance towards the people who need “affordable” housing.

In reply to “Overrun by affordable homes.”  I understand your desire to live in a “nice house in a good area” but please keep things in perspective – the percentage of affordable housing in the area is tiny and, while not a gated mansion estate, it’s not going to be a tower block.

Any ideas?

To be frank, I salute Ruth Sault’s honesty last month (Village Views “Overrun by affordable homes”).

The recent tragedY that struck Alvechurch Middle School attracted much media attention. I am an ITV news cameraman and reporter who has lived in the village for many years and was disappointed to hear of some complaints on Facebook recently complaining of the ‘intrusion’ of the media at both the school and St Laurence’s Church.
