Have a great night of music and dance – and Back The Track!


It’s all going on at Brownhills Community Centre. Image from Walsall Council.

I’ve been contacted by the Clayhanger Kid himself, Brian Stringer who’s asked me to let you all know that Brownhills Community Association and the Back The Track project will be hosting a fundraising concert at the Community Centre in Brownhills on Saturday, March 10th 2018 and tickets are just £5 with proceeds to the greenway project on the old rail line through Brownhills.

You can book online here.

This wonderful event will feature music of the 60s and 70s, the brilliant Aldridge Ukulele Band and the Follow Spotlight group, creating an evening of sing-along, dance-along magic.

Funds will be raised to help continue the project of clearing the railway cutting in Brownhills and converting it into a walking and cycling greenway called the McClean Way. I’ve already reported how Brian, Mick and pals have cleared the under bridge on the Miner Island of rubbish, and are working to get the cutting drained.

Work is still ongoing despite the mud and when conditions improve, there will be a real push forward. You can find out more at the group’s website here and Facebook page here.

Back The Track have my full support and I’d love one day for this to be a route to Lichfield. What an excellent downhill run that would be…

This is an excellent project, and it’s good to see McClean finally get some recognition!

Hi Bob.

As you know we are holding a charity bash on the 10th March  2018 at 7.30pm to raise funds for Back The Track.

The Lamp Theatre at Brownhills Community Centre was kindly offered to us by Jan Davis which we gratefully accepted.

The Aldridge Ukulele band and the Follow Spotlite group will be performing songs from the 60s and 70s which should be a good fun night with loads of audience particiation with raucous singing and bawling as the years roll away.

A post in your blog would surely boost our £5 ticket sales so I would be grateful if you would give us a plug.

They can be bought from the Community Association office. or reserve them by phone on 01543 452119.

You can also book online here.

Anybody who wants to know more about Back The Track and the McClean Way project can go to www.backthetrack.org.uk.

I think we can all get behind this!
