Villager's View - What you've been saying . . .

Don’t sacrifice our play area
Posted on October 29 2019 0 comments

I am writing with regard to Alvechurch Parish Council’s proposed car parking options for Rowney Green, and in particular the option to relocate the children’s play area.


Access-only sign is out of date
Posted on October 29 2019 0 comments

Having read much of the debate surrounding cars using Ten Ashes Lane between Groveley Lane and Barnt Green Road (Village News, September 2019 and Village Views, October 2019) can we just remember that the “Except for Access” signs are not some ancient historical local by-law.


Path has turned into quagmire
Posted on October 29 2019 0 comments

Despite the wet weather, my husband and I and our two 11-year-old Labradors set out on a fairly regular walk route from our home in Barnt Green, on to the path behind the Sports Club in Margesson Drive.


Love for the wildflowers

I wanted to say how much I appreciate the hard work, time and effort of the volunteers who are helping to sow perennial flowers in Greenbank’s wild flower meadow in Barnt Green.


Football fundraising

Following the very generous offer of Peter Gwilliam and Scott Wilkinson of Alvechurch FC to donate a season ticket for the first draw of “J’s Football Cards” in August, I was thrilled to be the winner!


Burcot homes plan will change village life

It is sad to learn that the beautiful hamlet of Burcot is being forced to accept a new housing development on the garden centre site.


The Lickeys are well managed

As Chair of the Lickey Hills Society (LHS), I would like to respond to the letter from John A Ridarta in your September edition.


Rangers do a great job

Your contributor last month asked about the management of the Lickey Hills. I moved back into this area from Hertfordshire two years ago.


Police should listen to residents’ concerns
Posted on September 30 2019 0 comments

With regard to the issue of motorists using Ten Ashes Lane as a cut-through (Short-cut concerns, The Village September 2019), I find it interesting that the local police deem that the speed and volume of traffic was “not of a high level of concern”.


Law is clear and must be upheld
Posted on September 30 2019 0 comments

Your picture of one of the six identical road signs sited at the entrances to Ten Ashes Lane, Cofton Hackett, clearly shows a red circle.


Closing junction is not solution
Posted on September 30 2019 0 comments

I don’t agree with Steve Smith and his proposals that Ten Ashes Lane be closed at the junction with Barnt Green Road.


Saj is respecting ‘will of people’
Posted on September 30 2019 0 comments

I would like to comment on the September Village View, and firstly point out that, like our MP Sajid Javid, I also voted “remain” in the EU referendum.


Don’t blame it all on Brexit
Posted on September 30 2019 0 comments

Your September Village View bemoans local vandalism before going off on an irrational rant about Brexit.


Floral inspiration
Posted on September 30 2019 0 comments

What a charming and interesting article, Flowers for the future, by Mary Green in your September magazine.


Church has no cash to spare
Posted on August 30 2019 0 comments

I would like to take the opportunity to clear up one or two misunderstandings in the letter about the new Cofton Village Hall in last month’s magazine.


Please stop the stencilling
Posted on August 30 2019 0 comments

May I appeal to the grown-up who gave a stencil set to a young child as a birthday present to take it back as soon as possible.


Lickeys must be protected
Posted on August 30 2019 0 comments

I wonder if any of your regular contributors know anything about the Lickey Hills – who currently manages this beauty spot and plans for the future?


Post Office is essential
Posted on August 30 2019 0 comments

I wonder when we will discover the fate of Alvechurch Post Office? The building has been sold, but nobody seems to know what’s happening.


Church could chip in for the hall
Posted on July 29 2019 0 comments

As a resident of Cofton Hackett, I was interested to read the article in last month’s Village regarding the apparent poor response from Cofton residents to appeals for funds to fit out the new village/parish hall.


Grubs to blame for wrecked lawn
Posted on July 29 2019 0 comments

Having read Keith Hughes’s letter “That’s the badger” (July 2019), I think I can shed some light on why this has happened.
