The boys are back in town this Wednesday!

If the kids are re-united: The Brigade faithful reassemble for a group photo in March, 2012. The cream of Walsall Wood. Assemble your own joke here… Image supplied by an anonymous reader(!).

Here’s a great thing happening this Wednesday (10th December 2014) at Oak Park Football Clubhouse, from 7:30pm – the Christmas reunion of Walsall Wood Boys Brigade.

The young David Evans dropped me a line a couple of days ago and asked me to give it a plug – it will be a fine night, and one of several such events held at the club in recent years.

HI Bob,

Local lad Ivor Osborne has asked me I would contact your blog, which I am delighted to do.

There is to be a Christmas Reunion of the good old boys of Walsall Wood Boys Brigade on Wednesday 10th December, in Walsall Wood Football Club’s posh clubhouse, from 7.30pm until way past cocoa time.

I am told that all old Walsall Wood brigaders, regardless of their present shape and condition will be very welcome to join in this joyful regular festive celebration, and that there will be ample parking space for mobility scooters, zimmer frames etc by the clubhouse in Oak Park, Walsall Wood.

I would be delighted if you are able to put this notice on your blog

kind regards, and my sincere thanks,

Readers may well remember the photo of the Brigade football team from the 1960s: any common faces spanning the years? Fine looking bunch of chaps, it would seem, in both pictures…

Comments here please, or by email if you prefer to BrownhillsBob at Googlemail dot com. Cheers.
