I went to the launch of the poppy appeal in Wednesbury yesterday and took a few photos and photographed our increasingly popular bric-a-brac market while I was there. I learned a lot and it was a successful day when I learnt not only about enriching our town in the monetary sense but also in the cultural sense. An empty unit at the end of the market is now being used to sell poppies and a selection of related products.
I intend to begin a new series of posts reporting on local events that I photograph. We need to publicise local events more. people often miss an event and complain they didn’t know about it. I want to fix that! The first event I went to this week was the open mic event at Wednesbury Library.
