Chart-topping singer Olly Murs brought festive cheer to Merry Hill last week when he switched on the shopping centre’s Christmas lights on Friday 12th November.

The cheeky chappie, who hit the number one spot this year with single Please Don’t Let Me Go, sent hearts aflutter when he headlined the spectacular event. The sexy singer belted out three songs before the big lights switch-on, before making his fans’ dreams come true by answering their questions.
Britain’s Got Talent favourites Twist ‘n’ Pulse also enthralled shoppers with three incredible dance performances as part of the Christmas party event, which also included giveaways and entertainment from Heart FM. For more information, visit www.westfield.com/merryhill

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.
