Merry Christmas in this most peculiar of years…

Hi all

I’d just like to take five minutes to wish you a happy Christmas and let us all hope for a better 2021, and hopefully a return to some kind of normal when we can enjoy cafes, a pint in a sunny beer garden and the company of friends and family once more.

Lichfield, Saturday last. I still find those nutcracker things a bit creepy.

I know it’s very hard for many of us at the moment and that Christmas is not a happy time for lots of people this year. The blog remains here for all its readers and the community around it, and whilst I’ve been broadcasting on reduced power this year mainly due to work obligations, but also due to illness, I’m not in any way giving up and I have lots of great articles to come over the Christmas period for you.

Best wishes to you all, and a special thanks to the contributors to the blog who have needed the patience of a saint with me this year and my tardiness to answer email and get articles up in public.

So sorry, I will try and get more on top of it this coming year, I promise.

I will also be taking advantage of my first proper holiday in many years to catch up on 365days of biking too – so stay tuned.

There may even be the return of the New Year photo competition with a special lockdown them this year providing all goes to plan.

A big thank you again this year to Susan Forster and all involved in the Brownhills Christmas Tree Fund that worked so very hard to get us a tree at Morris’s feet for the second consecutive year.

So please, take care, have as best a time as you can in the circumstances and in this most peculiar of years, and remember, from here the nights get lighter…

Thank you for the community spirit, insights into history and fascinating contributions – and here’s to the new year and another twelve months of the Brownhills Blog.

All the best
