Surf’s up

Beach Boys fans can go Surfin’ DY5 this weekend as the seaside comes to Brierley Hill.

An 18-foot inflatable surfboard simulator will be just one of the attractions at the first Brierley Hill by the Sea, which takes place on Saturday 30 July from 10.30am to 3.30pm.

The event will be based around the Moor Centre and Concord Market, both on High Street, and will include a crazy sand workshop, sandpit, bouncy castle and donkey rides.

There will also be a face painter, giant bubbles, balloon modeller, children’s fairground ride, music from a jazz band and a Punch and Judy show.

To complete the theme, families can have their pictures taken by posing behind a traditional seaside cut-out and entertainers in full nautical dress will be putting on a show.

Councillor Angus Adams, cabinet member for regeneration, said:

“I would encourage families to come along and enjoy the first Brierley Hill by the sea event. It’s the ideal way to start the school summer holidays.”

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.
