Janet Davies from Brownhills Community Association has been in touch, asking me if I’d share some great news about their organisation – of course, that’s no problem at all.
Janet had this to say:

Brownhills Community Association today announced that they have achieved the Visible Community Standards award through Community Matters.
The award was presented to the company following a robust inspection on all policies and procedures as a charitable organisation. Jan Davies Community Centre Manager said that the award has given them a good health check in the way they operate, as although they are a Community Organisation they have to operate as a business model. We are all facing challenging times and need to raise our standards to show we are good at what we do.
The award has given the organisation a quality mark that will help them to apply for external funding which will help to provide services to the local community.
The Community Association are based at Brownhills Activities Centre, just by the Miner Island in central Brownhills, and always have lots going on for people from the town – and the wider community – to enjoy.
The Activity Centre is what my generation would know as ‘The Annexe’ – the old Central Boy’s School, now a bustling community resource. To find out more about the events and activities listed, you can pop in or call them on 01543 452119.
Janet and her fellow community organisers have lots of stuff going on, and loads of great facilities, right in the heart of Brownhills. I love what they’re about and all the great things they’re doing.
My best wishes to Janet and the gang, please do pop along and check them out. I have taken the liberty of also including their latest newsletter detailing events, clubs and classes that are available. Click on each page for a larger version.
