Chasewater Rangers Rant Spring 2015

I’m doing this one following requests on social media – the Chasewater Rangers Rant newsletter for Spring 2015, and it’s rather good, I have to say – paper copies are available free from the Innovation Centre.

The kindness of strangers – thank you

I just want to take a moment to say thanks to all who shared and kept an eye out for the silver mountain bike stolen from Brownhills High Street last Sunday Morning – the lad who had the bike taken sadly doesn’t have it back (any info still appreciated) but I and his mum would like to thank those of you who offered to help in so many ways.tumblr_n2x25c7w3V1qib2vgo1_1280 Continue reading

Travellers encamp near Chasewater

I note travellers have encamped on the land between Pool Road and Whitehorse Road in Brownhills, where the old trotting track and stadium used to stand.

Brock and roll

This isn’t very pleasant, so I’ll be short and to the point – people, we have a burgeoning badger population at the moment as these guys come in from the fringes of local countryside into town, just as their brothers the foxes have done, and unfortunately they’re dying in large numbers on our roads.
