Posted on March 30 2017 0 comments

Have you had any comments on this wagon, which is permanently parked just off Cobbs Barn Island in Alvechurch?


Bollard is a distraction

Have other villagers spotted the new child-shaped bollard outside Lickey Hills Primary School on Old Birmingham Road?


Council ‘disregard’ for residents
Posted on March 30 2017 0 comments

I am a resident of Kendal End Road and would agree wholeheartedly with the resident of Cherry Hill Road (“Lack of urgency in road closure”, March 2017)


It was nice while it lasted. . .

Reading the comments from several residents regarding the Barnt Green road closure, I would like to point out that I have also been inconvenienced with the diversions.


Yellow lines = faster traffic

I write in response to the March Oakalls article, “Lines and Litter”. I am not entirely sure where your correspondent, Sarah Rees, lives, but I assume it is not on Green Park Road?


Traffic scheme ‘foisted’ on village

Work has now commenced on the traffic-calming measures scheme on Groveley Lane, Cofton Hackett.


High price for toilet

How interesting it was to read of the “Village toilet tussle” in the March issue.


Village does not need a new loo

In response to your March article “Village toilet tussle”: are councillors Hotham, Gumbley and Briggs a comedy act? 


Two-hour mystery

I am curious to know who has decided that the two long lay-bys near Hopwood services have been designated for two-hour parking only, and what the reasons are.


The big picture

Reading recent Village issues, I’ve been prompted to ponder on the so-called big picture. 


Sadness for Barnt Green
Posted on February 27 2017 0 comments

I moved to Barnt Green some months ago, and I have been so impressed by the warmth and friendliness of residents, and local businesses and services.


Dog dirt spoiling club for others

Alvechurch Cricket Club has increasingly become an entry to The Meadows for dog walkers, or in some cases just a drier version of The Meadows for dog owners to offer their dogs some exercise.


Lack of urgency in road closure
Posted on February 27 2017 0 comments

I am a resident of Cherry Hill Road, so I am enduring the heavy flow of traffic taking the shortest route around the Barnt Green road closure.


Carving through our idyll

I’m writing in reference to Mr and Mrs Partridge’s letter, “Bins protect our verges”, in February’s Village.

Following on from the letter and photo from Mr Whitby in January’s Village, I too have enclosed a photo of our grass verge.


‘Nightmare’ of village traffic
Posted on January 30 2017 0 comments

As a long-standing resident of Barnt Green (22 years) I’ve noticed so many changes, from a lovely village location with a fabulous village school to an over-populated, car-ridden nightmare.


No regrets over Brexit and Trump

You will not be surprised to receive a response to the comment in the Village View in your January issue.


Heartfelt thanks

I would like to sincerely thank all the wonderful people of Rowney Green and Alvechurch for the beautiful cards, letters and warm wishes received on the sudden tragic loss of my beloved son Julian.


Verging on the ridiculous

I have enclosed a photo of the damage caused by a Virgin Media road crew when they laid their cables along Middle Drive in Cofton Hackett.


Bin and gone

It beggars belief that Bromsgrove District Council wants folk to be nothing more than slave labour to carry bins to and from their abode.
