It is officially the start of the summer and I can't wait to spend the days outside in the garden, I'm sure the members of the gardeners club feel the same.

In this edition you can read about the Historical and field society's interesting report about the Blue Bird factory in Hunnington, It's great to hear that Kim and Angela who are the Active Senior instructors are giving a talk and helping to raise awareness of Osteoporosis at their event in Amblecote - more information here. It's amazing to hear about the student involvement at Hagley RC High School, congratulations on the money you raised for a great project and it's lovely to hear about your collaborations with other schools and projects - more here.

Hagley Parish Council have an update on here about the local Lloyds bank and the Girl Guides are still in need of leaders, if this is something you would be keen to do more details can be found here. Fran Evans has also written an article about what's happening in Hagley here.
