@MikeCrannage – Brierley Hill’s own Crocodile Dundee gets me thinking about the flats

It was good to bump into Mike Crannage at last night’s Dudley Voice for Choices launch. Mike is the mayor’s attendant and so I know him from my Dudley Council days. You may have read about Mike before for such activities as shrugging off venomous snake bites and scaling volcanos whilst crossing the Costa Rican jungle or racing 155 miles through the Sahara desert or braving “driving winds and temperatures of minus 30 degrees celsius hiking across the frozen wastelands of the Arctic.” Our conversation though got me thinking about the Chapel Street flats.
