Just a quick headsup to those interested in Walsall Wood history and who are free this Wednesday afternoon (28th September 2016) – there’s a talk featuring the Brownhills Blog’s favourite Wood Mon™ and top contributor, the young David Evans.
Following the success of David’s recent talk at The Well on Walsall Wood which over 40 people attended, David has been learning powerpoint, furiously making slides and perusing the Les Dawson big book of bad puns for inspiration.
David is without doubt the most knowledgable historian on Walsall Wood matters and the chance to hear him speak on the matter is not to be missed – the talk starts at 2:30pm, and costs just £2 (including refreshments) – pre-booking is essential, as places are limited.
I wish David well, and hear more such events are in the pipeline. I thoroughly applaud David’s community spirit and hard work in putting on these talks. The more people who may be inspired to explore their and our collective heritage the better!
You can find out more by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling the on 01922 655572 – of course, you can just pop in to the library on the corner of High Street and Walsall Wood.
