Seriously. You have to go and see it. Brierley Hill Festival of Christmas Trees got underway today (Saturday 7th December), and it runs until next Sunday (15th December). At least 28 individuals, organisations and local businesses contributed a tree – a fantastic number for a festival which is in its first year. It is heartwarming when our local community comes together like this in Brierley Hill and it makes me very proud to live in the town.
A chance meeting with inspirational Laura Nolan of The Nuthouse Bakery brought back memories of planning battles, innovative new homes at Merry Hill, and an example being set on how to carry out sustainable development nationwide. All against a background of scepticism.
At its November meeting Brierley Hill Civic Society heard a spending speech from canal expert and enthusiast Graham Fisher MBE and then discussed progress on the Brierley Hill in Bloom project and the forthcoming Brierley Hill Christmas festival. A record 28 people attended the meeting – which is open to anyone who has an interest in our town past, present and future.
A fantastic music and dance line up for the Brierley Hill Christmas Festival on Saturday. Come along and support us at The Moor Centre, Insight House, ASDA and Brierley Hill Market.
