Brownhills Gazette November 1992 issue 38_000001

Brownhills Gazette November 1992 issue 38 – 16 page issue with a poor response to a community tidy up of the cemetery, Brownhills School becomes a Technology School, more controversy over Ravens Court, Birch Coppice Landfill is to be capped, there’s a golden wedding anniversary for the Dennis family, and Clayhanger flooding in the archives, plus loads more. Please click for a larger version.

Continuing the scans of the Brownhills Gazette – I present issue 38 of the long lost freesheet, from November 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 is a 16 page issue with a poor response to a community tidy up of the cemetery, Brownhills School becomes a Technology School, more controversy over Ravens Court, Birch Coppice Landfill is to be capped, there’s a golden wedding anniversary for the Dennis family, and Clayhanger flooding in the archives, plus loads more.

I note from the editorial panel a sister title was published for Pelsall. Does anyone know about that at all, please?

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.
