We often hear people talk about how nice it is to live in our villages and how lucky we all are to do so.

Roads to nowhere

Just when it looked probable that I may be alone in thinking that with all the frantic building and road-making going on in this Sceptered Isle, we will all be permanently gridlocked, your editorial and David Barton and Sophie Garner’s letters in the October issue revealed that perhaps other people have been thinking about this as well.

Regarding the subject of speeding traffic in Barnt Green, I note that parish clerk Gill Lungley states that Fiery Hill Road is not suitable for the use of a speed gun (The Village October 2017).

I want to raise a very real concern about the car park provided by the builders of the new estate on Fiery Hill.

The October Village View asked what our villages will look like in 20 years. As a long-term resident of Cofton Hackett, I can quite sadly say that what was a pleasant place to live is sadly not any more.

A sincere thank you from Alvechurch Parish Council to all who contributed to the Neighbourhood Plan displays at the Baptist Church in October; an event which launched the final six-week consultation before the Plan is submitted. 

POW memories

It was so interesting to read about “Our German gentle men” (The Village, September 2017). I, too, lived near the POW camp in Groveley Lane, Cofton Hackett.

The Macmillan “Biggest Ever Coffee Morning” held at Rectory Cottage, Alvechurch raised an amazing £879.
