This week I had the privilege to attend the opening of Castletots Nursery, a brand new provision for two year olds in Walsall Wood. Castlefort JMI School have put so much hard work and effort into getting the new premises up and running ready for the new children it was wonderful to see it finished and ready for action.

The work of the Poppy Appeal across Aldridge-Brownhills continues and last weekend I helped to secure just some of the 1500+ knitted poppies on to the village clock in Pelsall. Support for the hard work of the British Legion Group in Pelsall got them onto the ITV and BBC news showing what can be achieved when a community comes together. I also had time for a spooky snap in the Village Centre for Halloween too.
