Despair over speeding

Can I add to your volume of motor-related concerns.


Politicians are too car-centric
Posted on September 30 2018 0 comments

I was dismayed to read your article in September concerning our recently-elected “independent” politicians and their desire to “solve the growing parking problems across Alvechurch”.

While there is much talk presently of new and old Cofton Hackett coming together and new exciting plans going ahead, what a pleasure it was to experience on a warm end-of-summer’s evening, at no later than 6pm, the sights and smells of thick, white, acrid smoke.

It was interesting to read Sarah Rees’ report on the problems with the Oakalls roundabout (The Village, August 2018).


Long wait spoils benefit of new train timetable
Posted on August 31 2018 0 comments

In common with so many travellers who have looked forward to the extension of the Cross City line to Bromsgrove, I was dismayed to find that trains stopping at Barnt Green at 19 minutes past the hour result in a wait of over 40 minutes at Bromsgrove for a connecting train to Worcester and beyond.

Right then: Mr Julian Cobbledick of Cofton Hackett (Village Views, July 2018) has a point with regard to “strange lights” in the Lickey Hills.

Every now and then I like to have a browse through The Village magazine although I’m living far from my roots now.


Thanks to garden owners

Record amount raised

I thought you would like to know that in spite of a certain football match taking place on the Sunday of Alvechurch Open Gardens, we managed to raise a record £5,115.


New station, old problems

Last month’s letter, “Traffic frustration”, made interesting reading.


Infrastructure has whiff of decay

I feel truly privileged to live in this part of Worcestershire – the trees are especially beautiful, not only at this time of year but all year round.


Street circus

What on earth is going on with Swan Street in Alvechurch?


Speed limit conspiracy?

I note that Coopers Hill in Alvechurch has now been reduced to an urbanised 30mph. 


Road only fit for horse and cart

I have just driven from Barnt Green to Alvechurch and my shaken bones are yet to recover.


Traffic frustration
