Continuing the scans of the Brownhills Gazette – I present issue 45 of the long lost freesheet, from June 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.
Sadly, issue 44 is missing from the archive. If anyone has a copy we could scan please, do shout up!
This is a large 20 page issue, with the Myatt’s diamond anniversary, Walsall Wood youth club raise money for charity, vintage fire appliances on show at Chasewater, local crime escalates, concerns over Clayhanger development, closure of the Railway Tavern, and some great archive material.
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.
