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

Libraries should be fully staffed

I attended the public consultation at Rubery Library for the proposed changes to our local libraries and would like to make the following points.


When will the tip farrago end?

So the saga of the Marlbrook Tip continues. Recent inspections have shown that the landowner has been importing hardcore to the site.


Tipping point

On December 13 at 15.20 (3.20pm in old money), as I turned on to Rose Hill, a line of us followed a heavily-overloaded tipper truck up the hill.

Richard Page wants to know where the small birds are (Village Views, January 2019).


Thanks for bin collection

We would personally like to thank Councillor Charles Hotham for arranging to get the grey bins collected after we had missed out before Christmas.


Get your facts straight

On Saturday January 5, I received a note through my letter box asking if I could clear an amount of dog waste from the waste ground at the side of my flat.


Parked cars are a real danger

I recently contacted Worcestershire County Council’s Highways department about the parking situation on Fiery Hill Road.


Oh, sugar!

It’s good to have a monthly recipe, but could you and your recipe writer please not describe something as a “healthy treat” and “full of good ingredients” when it is in fact full of sugar?


Green belt ‘gifted’ to developers

Thank you for alerting me to the District Plan consultation timeframe recently – which, like yourselves, I found to be a challenging read.


Tree trouble

When I was on Barnt Green Parish Council I found out they were paying £200 each year for supply and installation of a Christmas tree.


Remembering Robin

I read with interest an article written in 2012 in your publication about an Alvechurch resident, Robin Walden.


Where are the small birds?
Posted on December 28 2018 0 comments

I moved to Alvechurch just over a year ago and I really like The Village magazine. Now, as I’m keen to be involved with my local community, I thought I would tell you about something I’m experiencing: Where have all the small birds gone?


Planning process should be clearer

Thank you for the article “How To Object” last month, but please could you make a correction?


Thanks for clear path

A big thank you to the guys from Hillscourt Conference Centre/NASUWT for clearing the pathway on Rose Hill.


Planning laws are ‘undemocratic’
Posted on November 30 2018 0 comments

The current planning laws are grossly undemocratic, and our local councils should be ashamed that they participate in the implementation of them.


Slower traffic will create pollution

I see the 20mph speed limit is back on the agenda for Alvechurch. I would like to make the following observations.


Thank you, Peter

I am the sister of the late Peter Rippington. I do not live in Alvechurch, but visit the village regularly to see my family. Each time I visit, I go to look at the memorial garden to my brother.


Fireworks caused panic

I hope the people who set off the industrial-strength fireworks in Blackwell on Halloween were proud of themselves for creating so much noise. 


Barnt Green remembered

I have been reading with interest your online article (March 2011) about Barnt Green as seen through the eyes of former resident Gavin Bantock.


Too many councils for the coffers
Posted on October 30 2018 0 comments

With Worcestershire County Council recently announcing a £17.9 million projected overspend in their current year budget, and the six district or city councils within the county, including Bromsgrove Council, clearly also under financial constraints, surely it is now an appropriate time to revisit the potential financial and other benefits of the whole of Worcestershire being governed by either one or two unitary authorities.
