The Bromsgrove Lions Club and Anglo Welsh Waterway Holidays very kindly arranged a canal boat trip and a wonderful day out for The Stroke Association’s “Wednesday Friends” group.

Coffee thanks

Could I offer many thanks to all the lovely people who came along and supported our Macmillan coffee morning.

Parking pests

I felt I had to respond to the letter in The Village “Parking menace continues’” (October 2014).

Tweeting a selfie

I attach this photograph of a full body impression of a bird on our window while attempting to gain entry into the house . . . through the glass!

Bonfire bother

Regarding “Snail mail fail” (The Village, October 2014), which states: ‘’The proposal would have saved the council money’’ . . .

Seeing double

Everyone loves a good gastropub, and Barnt Green is lucky enough to have two. We moved to the area about a year ago and enjoyed the diversity in dining that this offered.

Birdlife haven

Amid all the controversy surrounding Marlbrook Tip, no mention has been made of its value as a haven for birdlife.

Leave our traditions

I reply to the letter in the September issue regarding Morris men tradition. I can only surmise that the writer must have a lot more time on their hands than I do.

I have just read a clipping from The Village magazine stating that an award has been granted regarding the so-called management of the Lickey cemetery.
