Brownhills Gazette March 1990 issue 6 – Ongoing campaigns on Birch Coppice, readers letters and other good stuff. Click for a larger version.

Continuing the scans of the Brownhills Gazette – I present issue 6 of the long lost freesheet, from March 1990 for you to peruse and download. I’ve had an incredible response to featuring these long, lost publications here on the blog.

David Evans, very kindly granted access to the archive held by former editor and contributor Brian Stringer, has been assiduously and conscientiously scanning them all. Every single issue. Every few days, I’m going to feature the next in the series.

If other bloggers want to use this material, can you please drop me a line first? I don’t mind, there’s just sone stuff I’d like to clear first, thanks.

Cheers to Brian and David for sharing a wonderful thing, that’s part of our community history.

  1. Whatever happened to Glue sniffing, was very fashionable when I were a lad.

    • MEK and other psychoactives were removed from most glues, and they became very expensive. However, inhaling other products – typically aerosols – is still a big issue with young teenagers.
