Continuing the scans of the Brownhills Gazette – I present issue 37 of the long lost freesheet, from October 1992 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.
This issue is 16 page issue with the news Brownhills Police Station was to stay open, parents decide on Shire Oak opt-out, the utterly unfeasible proposed Clayhanger Link Road, Jan Farrow launches a familiar book, and much more.
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.
