Brownhills Community Association Open Day today!

First up: I owe the people at Brownhills Community Association, and Little Green Dragons an apology. Last week, whilst very tired, I published a post advertising their open day and coffee morning. Sadly, because I was a plank (frankly), I completely messed it up. The correct date was in the text, yet I asserted in the post title that the event was last Friday. It wasn’t, it’s today.

My heartfelt apologies to all involved: The Community Association, the nursery, to Janet Davies and to any poor unfortunate soul who turned up for an event that wasn’t happening. I try to be accurate here, but sometimes I’m human. Sorry about that. I’ll be over there in the corner, whimpering and boiling my head.

Anyway, this is on today, Friday, 28th September 2012.

Brownhills Community Association will be hosting an open day on Friday 28th September 2012 10 am – 1 pm.

This will be to celebrate the opening and re-location of the  day nursery Little Green Dragons from Clayhanger to the Brownhills Activity Centre (the old Central Boy’s School, or Annex, just on the Miner Island in Brownhills).

Also a coffee morning will be held at the same time to raise money for the Macmillan Cancer Support when tea, coffee and cakes will be available for a small donation. All proceeds will go to the Macmillan funds.

We shall be joined by the Mayor and Mayoress of Walsall, plus many council members.

Anyone wishing to join us will be welcome.

This is a good opportunity to pull this comment Janet left on my post from last year about a visit to the centre, my first in years.

Hello Bob

Only just found the pictures on the blog,thank you for the comments about the Community Association, we are trying hard to make the old boys school a place for all ages to come and spend time doing social and recreational activities.

Just looking at the pictures makes us realize how far we have come since moving out of the school in Deakin Avenue after 28 years, it is a pleasure to work here and I love to hear the comments from former pupils who attended the school, the day to day running of the Brownhills Community Association runs from Mr Masseys old office who lots of people can associate with (good or bad).

If anyone would be interested in holding a reunion here we could look to put something on, if anyone is interested could you please contact 01543 452119 or come through to Brownhills bobs blog.

I think a reunion would be a splendid idea. Anyone up for that? Please comment here, or drop me a line at BrownhillsBob at Googlemail dot com. Cheers, and thanks to Janet for getting in touch.
