Brownhills Gazette April 1990 issue 7 – Watling Street School was to lose it’s mobile classrooms. Click for a larger version.

Continuing the scans of the Brownhills Gazette – I present issue 7 of the long lost freesheet, from April 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 about the usage, thanks.

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

If you have any memories, questions or observations please do comment or mail me – BrownhillsBob at Googlemail dot com.

    Hi Bob
    The photo of the Station hotel and its story is very interesting…I wonder what the single-storey building was..I don’t remember it. However, I fondly remember Gwen very well…and we learn a little more of her life in later issues of this series of Gazettes.
    Kind regards

    Another great read. I like the article on Bill Shaws family reunion in OZ
    Did he meet our Hovis?
