On the subject of wanting to reduce the bogginess of The Meadows playing fields in Alvechurch, I would like to offer the following information gleaned during my tenure as clerk to the Wiggin Memorial/Alvechurch Playing Field Trust that looks after the Meadows.
Here is a member of a family of wild deer that hopped over our fence and were quite at home.
Regarding “Snail mail fail” (The Village, October 2014), which states: ‘’The proposal would have saved the council money’’ . . .
I would just like to thank all those who stopped and helped on Saturday January 19 when I had fallen over in Alvechurch, by where the Christmas tree goes.
There are many recurring themes of village life, almost all of them positive. Many of us have, tucked away at the back of our minds, the idea that we don’t suffer the negatives of city life and have instead only to step a few hundred yards to be in countryside or to find special views across beautiful landscapes.
These are photos of some of the rubbish left again in the field next to the M42 overpass in Alvechurch.
I would like to applaud Susan Whitehand for raising the problem of urbanisation of rural roads around Barnt Green (‘Hold on to village life’, July/August 2008).
