Wednesbury on a Wednesday #Wednesbury
It is nice and sunny this morning in Wednesbury. I mentioned the History Society last week and I went to the talk last night. Robert Broadbent gave us an interesting talk about the Romans building Hadrian’s wall. I know, I said it was going to be about canals last week. I think I read that on a leaflet. It was still interesting. I nearly nodded off, though, not because I was bored, just tired from lack of sleep. I was told about a Christmas event next month with a buffet, next door in Churchill’s Club, I’ll have to get details; I was too tired to take it all in.
I noticed the Christmas lights were on the other day but the official switch-on is in the Market Place on the 25th of November. Dayton Grey is doing the switch-on. You can listen to him on Soundcloud.
Spoken word, poetry and music
Brendan Hawthorne organises a soirée of spoken word, poetry and music in the library on the last Tuesday of each month. Next month, there will be a Christmas special earlier in the month on Tuesday the 13th of December.
Colour me calm
Kaleidoscope Plus Group does ‘colour me calm’ sessions on a Friday at the library 3.15 to 4.30pm. I would need something to calm me down if I drove there through the Friday rush hour traffic.
The new youth club that opened in the cricket club pavilion is open tonight, 2nd of December at 6pm, for its official launch. I think I am supposed to be there to take the photographs. They were going to make it a Halloween event.
We have three markets a week as well as a car boot sale on the last Sunday of the month from 8 until 1pm. The bric-a-brac market does well and was busy when I went there last week. I think the stalls cost £11.50, but they are only £5 on Friday and Saturday, the same as the car boot. If you want to try selling on the market, have a word with the markets manager.
That is all for my Wednesbury on a Wednesday post for this week. There will be more Wednesbury news, next Wednesday!
