Continuing the scans of the Brownhills Gazette – I present issue 9 of the long lost freesheet, from June 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.

Very interesting for me is the mention of the first sightings of red deer (I believe mistakenly labelled as fallow deer) at Chasewater and the spotting of red deer near Hammerwich. I have often wondered the timeline of the deer’s arrival in Brownhills as exploring Chasewater, Engine Lane and The Common as a young boy in the early 80’s we never once encountered deer or deer tracks…. So it seems their arrival began in 1990….
