Views from the Past

Posted on March 23 2014 at 12:52:53

As the new editor of this magazine, I didn’t intend my first Village View to be based on my own pet hates. . . but this month’s postbag, coupled with comments from fellow villagers and on social media, proved that the thing that’s been winding me up of late is the same thing that’s getting up your noses, too: bad driving in general, and bad parking in particular.

We had a reminder at the weekend of how rural our village is, by the appearance of three roe deer in our garden – two inside the fence and one in the field on the other side.

Being confined temporarily at home after a bicycle accident, I read Mary Green’s article on waterways in the March issue and was amazed and educated about the tributaries feeding the River Arrow.

Daffodil damage

Just yesterday, on my way home from Rubery, I was thinking to myself how beautiful the daffodils were about to be along the edge of the park.

Tories’ tip excuses

I was very disappointed that during the recent full meeting of Bromsgrove District Council on Wednesday February 26, the quite reasonable request from Bromsgrove Labour Group Leader Luke Mallett that Bromsgrove District Council support his motion for a non-statutory public inquiry into the problems surrounding the mismanagement of the Marlbrook tip was rejected by the Tory Group.
