Continuing the scans of the Brownhills Gazette – I present issue 43 of the long lost freesheet, from April 1993 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 another 12 page issue, packed with interesting stuff – A popular caretaker retires, Suzan Hassan gets to Uni, plant pot thieves were plying their vile trade, an absolutely astounding archive image, a special feature on United Carriers 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.
If you have any memories, questions or observations please do comment or mail me – BrownhillsBob at Googlemail dot com.
Nice to see the Business Profile of my old company United Carriers in this edition

With respect this is a published news journal from 27 years ago, which I’ve just reproduced.
I’d suggest you take it up with the editor, but the company and publication ceased to exist 1n 1995.
Lovely to see a photograph of my grandad Lewis Whitehouse enjoying himself in the quiz. Sadly, he passed away in 1999, so any photos are a welcome reminder of him.
Also, I was Chair of the Friends of Millfield group at this time and it was amazing to see just how much money we raised, with everyone’s help for Millfield School and the pupils….
