This week volunteers from Home Start, based in Brierley Hill joined English Heritage Outreach Manager Suzanne Carter to devise a fun, family Treasure Trail around the historic high street area (From Marsh Park to Civic Centre) and the magnificent Brierley Hill Pony Trail.
The Treasure Trail will be tried and tested with more Home Start volunteer families next week, and ready for a public Treasure Trail Weekend event Saturday 28 and Sunday 29th August 2010– a date for your diary!!! Watch this space for more details!

Neighbours News is a non-profit voluntary organisation, formally constitued as a group since September 1999 on the Castle & Priory Ward in Dudley. We produce community newsletters for residents. As of 2004, we have expanded to other areas (most of which are in high deprivation).
We want to get a community newsletter for Brierley Hill circulating, because there is interest, however we need to find any potential funders and anyone who might be interested in sponsoring an edition. High Arcal School in Sedgley has sponsored an edition of the Oval & Tudor News in Upper Gornal, for example.
We remove the official language and put it in plain English for people to understand, keeping them informed about local issues, training and job opportunities, developments, town centre events, etc.
Our local distribution is carried out by community groups and the print group we use trains people with learning difficulties.
We are based on the Pensnett Trading Estate, having relocated offices, due to the demolition work being done on North Priory, where our former premises were in Pine Road.
