In Full . . .

Blackwell sign was fine

Sir – Let us finally put this nonsense of the siting of Blackwell village on Greenhill to rest.

Midway on Greenhill is situated a residential care home known as Burcot Grange, with a postal address of Burcot Grange, Greenhill, Burcot, Bromsgrove, Worcestershire B60 1BJ. These premises appear in an advert in your magazine and clearly have been in existence for a long time.

From the above I take the view that the boundary of Blackwell village and Burcot Village lie somewhere between Burcot Grange and the top of Greenhill, and I would suggest that the previous siting of the sign was probably about right.

Finally, as a taxpayer I strongly object to Lickey and Blackwell Parish Council wasting £300 on what I consider to be an ill thought out scheme and suggest that the councillors concerned refund it from their own pockets.
