Here’s one for people interested in the issues surrounding Brownhills Common – theres a meeting at 7:00pm tonight (Thursday 13th February 2014) of the Freinds of Brownhills Common group at the Environmental Depot, 200 Pelsall Road, Brownhills. WS8 7EN – please meet in the reception.
If you can make time, do pop along. Brownhills Common will benefit hugely from an active friends group, and considering the manufactured outrage last year, I’d have thought plenty would be ready to join and add their voice. It’s important that we recognise what a valuable, fragile and important habitat Brownhills Common is, and why it requires careful and measured stewardship.
If you’ve only heard the alarmists, it’s a good opportunity to go out and meet, talk and listen to people who understand the issues and love the wildlife, and to help shape the future of something we all love.
Please go if you can.
The proceedings of the last meeting are available by clicking this link, so you can get an idea of what kind of stuff is going on – note the concerns over low turnout and publicity.
Perhaps the organisers might like to tip me the word next time…
