Monday December 7th 2020 – Thanks to the tenacity and dedication of Susan Forster and friends who work so hard to raise money and organise the provision, Brownhills finally had it’s second festive community Christmas tree lit up on the miner island for all to enjoy.
Some electrical issues and council staffing difficulties meant it was a few days late, but no less excellent and very, very festive for us all to admire.
The tree is paid for like every other local tree in Walsall Borough by community donation and commercial support, and the volunteers have worked like demons to sort this out. The first tree they organised was in 2019, and that was the first we’d had in Brownhills for over a decade.
My thanks and best wishes to the all. You can find out more and make a donation at their Facebook page by clicking here.
