Young players need a pitch

Having read the report in the local press about the problem of the Alvechurch playing fields being constantly waterlogged, I have strong views about the need for this problem to be eradicated.

Barnt Green can’t escape

After reading your May issue, I was left feeling slightly angry and somewhat bemused at some people’s attitude in Barnt Green

Thanks for carol contributions

I would like, through The Village magazine, to pass on thanks to those who attended the Christmas Carol Services in St Andrew’s, Barnt Green, and St Michael’s, Cofton Hackett.

Residents’ power

I have read with interest the recent reports and articles concerning the establishment of the Barnt Green area Residents Association.

Raptor rapture

We are used to seeing many small birds in our garden each morning, but today we were visited by one of the two raptors that we normally see circling high in the sky above the field at the bottom of the garden.

Miranda Shute, a nine-year-old pupil at St Andrew’s Church of England First School in Barnt Green, sent us the following poem.

Where there’s a rabbit . . .

In response to the letter from Darren Maguire (Village Views, October) about his sighting of birds of prey in Alvechurch, I can most definitely say what he saw was a family of buzzards.

Spanner in the works

Around 18 months ago you published an article on Dave Hodgins, formerly a specialist trained Audi mechanic, who had set up his own business (as a mechanic) in Alvechurch, along with his dog.
