Wonderful afternoon


Just one of the great images collected by Bill Mayo and his wife, Clarice. Published in the book ‘Memories of Brownhills Past’. Please, I implore all to buy copies when they can.

A quick word from myself and reader David Evans, in thanks for the great talk by Bill and Geoff at the Parkview Centre yesterday. As stalwarts of the local history scene in Brownhills, it’s wonderful to see them give such an entertaining and enjoyable talk.

Hi Bob

I would be pleased if you would kindly give a big thankyou to Bill and Geoff for their fascinating and illuminting slideshow this afternoon. The room was full of eager and attentive good folk all keen to see and learn. Bill and Geoff gave an entertaining and captivating slideshow with informative commentary and the hour passed very very quickly  – too quickly even.

The library staff who had arranged this event also deserve our thanks and I am sure that the feedback sheets which we filled in will be the most positive and gratefuly possible.

kind regards


If you ever get chance, please do buy the books: they’re a terrific resource and a great start in studying the history of our area.

Cheers to Bill and Geoff.
