Continuing the scans of the Brownhills Gazette – I present issue 72 of the long lost freesheet, from September 1995 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 24 page issue with dark times for Walsall Wood FC whose clubhouse burned down, an arson attack at Shelfield Comp, plans for an industrial park at Sandhills were still being fought, Caters were offing keyboard lessons, speeding on the A5 concerns,  crime news and 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.
