At the Village Gathering on Wednesday 4th July, local man David Jellie, gave a talk on photography.  David, who is a member of Bromsgrove Photographic Society, shared tips and techniques on 'keeping photography simple', using a slide show to help visualize his advice.  The feedback from the talk was very positive and the event was enjoyed by all attendees, who are looking forward to another talk to put them in the picture!

The Village Gathering on the morning of 18th April in the Village Hall, was very successful.  Many thanks to local Historian Peter Crowe, who gave a very interesting talk.  Thanks also to Angie Barnes for bringing along an ancient document regarding the property in Dodford Road, that she and David live in.  Thanks also to Denise and David Field for bringing along an old framed photograph of their house in Fairfield Road, when it was part of the old chapel and school house properties. These items certainly added to the interest.

BOURNHEATH VILLAGE COMMUNITY CENTRE WALKING GROUP

The new walking group got off to a good start, last Friday (20th April) morning, with a leisurely stroll (approx 2 miles) around the Pepper Wood area, starting at Bournheath Village Community Centre.  People walked both with and without dogs and enjoyed the lovely weather.  There will be another walk in May, date yet to be confirmed.

****Thank you to everyone who turned up at the second community drop-in session.  We are learning so much about Bournheath from those who have lived in the village for a long time.  We have shared stories, laughter and ideas for future gatherings.  We look forward to seeing you at the next Community Centre gathering on Wednesday 18th Aprilfrom 10-12 - please feel free to bring along a friend or neighbour, unfortunately, as much as we love them, dogs have to stay at home***

At these sessions we will have tea/coffee/cakes, a book bank, games and a general chat about how we want see these sessions develop in the futureWhether you filled in the questionnaire in January or not, everyone is welcome to come along to these sessions and to meet your friends and neighbours in the village.  If you have any books that you would like to donate to the book bank, please bring them along with you – and, of course, you can swap a book for one that someone else has brought along.

The plan for the future is that we will generally meet on the first and third Wednesdays of the month (first Wednesday from 1.30-3.30, third Wednesday from 10-12 so that people who are only available in the morning or the afternoon can, at least, attend one session). You can come along for the whole session – we will usually aim to have a speaker and a range of activities – or just drop in for a coffee/chat/to exchange a book etc.  Due to existing bookings at the Community Centre, there will not be social gathering on Wed 15th August.

We look forward to seeing as many people as possible there – let’s all help to make Bournheath Village Community Centre a sociable and welcoming place to be!
