A picture emailed in by Village reader Sally Hartley shows St Laurence Church, Alvechurch, from an unusual angle, with Newbourne Hill as the backdrop.
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.
Who else has an Anderson Shelter? We have. My husband and I moved to Cofton Hackett in 1963 and soon started work on our rear garden backing on to Cofton Lake.

I am writing to highlight an on-going problem for the residents of Bear Hill Drive and The Gaunts, Alvechurch.
Dawn Holloway of Alvechurch sent us the following poem.
