Village News March 2021


As we bring to you this March edition of the Village News we hope that you are all keeping well and coping as best you can through these ongoing tough times. With this being the month of Mothers's Day we have included lots of spring blooms throughout this issue and dressed up our community bus in the same spirit. We hope that our little flowery doodles make you smile.

We have a very special young man in our community who I'm sure is making his lovely mum smile. Sam Gascoyne is fundraising for Myeloma UK - a blood cancer which his mum Deb is fighting her own battle with. If you wish to support Sam please see details on page 4 of what he aims to achieve and how you can help. We at the Village News would like to say "Good on you Sam, go for it".

We bring good tidings with regards to the Community Centre. Plans for extensions and refurbishment have been submitted to Bromsgrove District Council and although not available on their portal yet we have included them in this issue. Take a look at pages 6&7. We're very excited!

You've probably noticed that on the back cover of each issue (space permitting) we like to include a short poem appropriate to the time of year. This month we have used a very famous poem by William Wordsworth - The Daffodils. We think its particularly poignant as it speaks about walks in the countryside and observing nature, both of which many of you have been doing during these most unsettling of times. It does also of course make mention of daffodils of which we have a beautiful image featured on our front cover - the area where the photograph was taken has become well renowned for these lovely flowers in recent years.

On a final note - we thought it might be nice to include some community written poems on our back cover. So if we have any budding poets out there who would like to submit a poem that they have written then, please do submit it to the editor via email.

Stay safe, take pleasure in the countryside, observe nature and enjoy the daffodils!
