September 7th – To the east of Redditch Church, there’s a small, open park-style garden, which is where I assume the name Church Green gets it’s name. It’s a lovely spot; not more than a postage stamp, it contains an intriguingly ornate fountain and a well looked-after bandstand. The green is pleasant, clean and tidy, and in spring, lined with blossom. Now autumn is coming, a host of seasonal hues will compliment it. Why did the town planners destroy what must have been a lovely old town?
