Big local history morning at Redditch Library

I was delighted to drop into Redditch Library this morning where I got to meet a number of exhibitors at their local history morning.

I spoke with representatives of Wythall Transport Museum, and got to meet various other historical and heritage societies.

It’s well worth dropping into a future event of this kind. Follow Redditch Library on Facebook for details.

Many thanks to the team for organising the event. I forgot to get a photo whilst I was there, so I hope it’s OK to use the event’s poster for this post instead.

Civic Service for Worcestershire County Council at Worcester Cathedral

Every year, the Chairman of the County Council lays on a ‘Civic Service’. I’ve tried googling for what this means, but couldn’t really find any decent explainers. To my mind, it’s a bit like an annual ‘assembly’ for councillors and council officials – a reference for those of us who remember singing ‘All things great and small’ in a school sports hall first thing in the morning.

It’s a good opportunity to reflect, to listen to the sermon, and to meet up with colleagues across the political board.
