Biggin up the Black Country
Yes, we’re biggin’ up the Black Country with our Black Country Day, a Black Country Festival all through July and we even have our own Black Country flag.This is Black Country Gaz who started the whole thing, biggin’ it up last night at the Sportsman in Tipton.
The whole idea, is to put the Black Country back on the map. We were well known when we had the industry,we were the tube capital of the world and made lots of other things like chains and even weapons at one time. They say we made the anchor for the Titanic too heavy, but I blame the iceberg!
I want a Black Country flag coat like that, they could become all the fashion! There have been a lot going on in the Black Country with music and creative stuff; we’re even been getting artistic.
This is Paul Green, joining in the fun and selling the raffle tickets. It’s about raising money for charity, promoting the Black Country and havin’ a laugh…
Gaz had the idea that everyone could do their own thing as part of Black Country Day and as part of the Black Country Festival. The more people join in, the more we will be biggin up the Black Country! So why not see if you can do something as part of the festival?
Yow might even enjoy it! That’s all for today. I hope to be out and about again today taking more photos. I’ll be using photos from this weekend all this week so watch out for photos of the burlesque that was on at the Manor House!
