You lot are just wonderful: Since yesterday’s appeal for help following the theft of a hosepipe and garden ornaments from the Knacves Court extra care facility for the elderly in Brownhills, offers of help, hosepipes and donations have flooded in, including over £100 raised on a crowdfunded by Laura Hucker, old pal of the blog and proprietor of the Reading Rooms Cafe in Pelsall.
Offers came in from Russell Smith at Aldridge Cinema, as well as another local business I’m not sure if I can name; a whole bunch of private individuals chipped in too.
Thanks to each and every one of you from the bottom of my heart – once again the community we’re all part of takes a bad situation and shows what makes up the best of us. Thanks so much: Though there is bad stuff, Brownhills has a community spirit to be proud of.
Remember, if you’ve seen the ornaments in question, do get in touch, or contact the police on 101 – there was a good point yesterday made by a reader that there has been a particular spine in thefts and crime in a very small area of Lindon Drive and surrounds in recent weeks and it’s possible that it’s all linked. I know Brownhills Policing Team are trying to be as responsive as possible to this at the moment.
