October 1991 – MP calls for a two day exhibition of Toll Road

Brownhills Gazette October 1991 issue 25_000001

Brownhills Gazette October 1991 issue 25 – 25 pages covering the upcoming M6 Toll, a local Councillor’s football match, remarkable archive material, school news and much more. Please click for a larger version.

Continuing the scans of the Brownhills Gazette – I present issue 25 of the long lost freesheet, from October 1991 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.

Te Mr Toll – the the BNRR was coming, a sponsored walk raised a whole heap of cash, a young Graham Walker plays football in a Councillor’s football match, a street party from the Archives and interesting views on the new church extension.

Brian Stringer was a brilliant editor who still knows his stuff, and campaigns relentlessly for the place he loves. Brian was clearly working hard and getting into his stride here.

The history of how the Brownhills Gazette came to exist has been detailed in this post thanks to the wonderful John Sylvester.

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.

    Hi Bob
    Gwen James note regarding Clayhanger Girls Club is interesting. I wonder if there were other Girls clubs locally and if these became the Girls Guides movement post war, or were they something completely different. This part of pur local history seems to be somewhat unrecorded, perhaps. I wonder if readers can sehd light on this topic please…and perhaps have some photos they might share. Gwen mentions the club and the hard times of the pre war depression. What is not evident in her note is the tremendous physical difficulties she faced through most of her life and the great effort she put into writing this letter to the Gazette
    kind regatds
