Open goals celebration

Official opening

Village MP Sajid Javid (above centre) declares the renewed football pitch at The Meadows, Alvechurch, ready for kick-off.

The official opening, particularly apt as Mr Javid is the Culture, Media and Sport Secretary, was followed by a charity match between young Alvechurch Lions players and a team from Studley.

He was helped in the opening celebrations by Alvechurch Parish Council chairman Andy Humphries (right) and his predecessor, Coun John Cypher (left), who led the partnership that secured a grant of more than £30,000 from Sport England to drain and improve the pitch after a previous offer to pay by Bromsgrove District Council was mysteriously withdrawn.
