Continuing the scans of the Brownhills Gazette – I present issue 56 of the long lost freesheet, from May 1994 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 20 page issue with success for the local St. John’s Ambulance Division, the sad loss of Terry Clarke a community stalwart, plans were in hand for the 1994 Brownhills Carnival, wartime firefighter Irene Evans of Brownhills was remembered, some great archive material including a boxing great and a Sally Ann Christmas party – plus lots 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.

    Hi Bob
    1) page 16 has an intriguing report/correction by Vi (was that Mrs Violet?) Cliff regarding a building and its bell, which, seemingly, was formally situated in in Ogley Road. I wonder what is known about it, and whether there are any photos or deeds which may be available to your blog readers, please?
    2) Dame Schools? Were these free schools? where were the local Dame schools locally?

    kind regards,
    David
