What’s on in February

S

tourbridge and Kidderminister have a brilliant community, if you feel like you would like to get more involved within the community, why not volunteer? We have put together

a list of local organisations and even hobbies to help your calendar look more full. This is a great way to make new friends.

The Black Country Museum brings thousands of tourists to the Black Country every year, it is an important landmark in British History. Its long running existence would not be possible without the help of the voluntary organisation, Friends of the Black Country Museum. Set up in 1980 to help create the museum, the friends are still active as a voluntary group. People within and outside of the Black Country spread the word about the museum far and wide. They are also able to show their support in more practical ways. Membership is open to all. Get involved in their regular social meetings and find out more! www.bclm.co.uk TidyStoubridge was founded in April 2010 in order to help the environment by cleaning up the streets of Stourbridge. Made up of volunteers who attend up to 20 cleanup events every year, it is full of people who want to help the community and who care about the environment in which they live. To get involved, you can either follow the group on Twitter or subscribe to receive emails about their future littler picks. www.tidystourbridge.wordpress.com/ The Ladies Circle encourage women aged 18-45 across Stourbridge who are keen to get involved in charitable events. Collectively, they raise in excess of £250k each year. Its a fantastic way to get involved and meet new people. www.ladiescircle.co.uk/stourbridge

Worcester-based Sarah Greening Glass gets a Twitter Boost from Theo Paphitis

Worcester-based business has received a boost from Dragon’s Den Retail Entrepreneur Theo Paphitis. Sarah Greening (@Greeningglass) tweeted about her new glass fusing business during ‘Small Business Sunday’ and was one of the winners selected by Theo for his initiative which supports small businesses in the UK. Sarah had only been in business for 3 months when she won the #SBS award and she now has some products available to buy on the exclusive members’ selling platform: www.shopsbs.co.uk. Sarah will attend the annual #SBS networking event in February 2018 to meet Theo in person and take advantage of the networking opportunities. Sarah experiments with the chemistry of glass fusing in a kiln and her unusual jewellery includes pendants, rings, earrings and cufflinks and each piece is unique. She sells her jewellery online and at local art and craft fairs with her husband, Chris Greening, who has a pottery business. Sarah is one of the exhibitors at the Worcester Art Gallery and sells via Lilly Dilly’s boutique in Bewdley and Mangojuice Gallery, Worcester. Sarah is also offering glass fusing taster classes for up to 3 people at a time in her studio in Claines, Worcester. Visit www.sarahgreeningglass.co.uk for more details about the business.

I reckon a lot of readers reading this will be thinking, ‘there is no way there is a better Disney Pixar film than Toy Story or Finding Nemo!’ Don’t get me wrong, I love those films and thought the same until the 23rd of January 2018 when everything changed. I found a new love in Coco. I practically had to drag my mum to the cinema to see this film. She even had her eyes closed and was half asleep during the opening credits! After I had given her a sharp elbow and the opening credits were in full swing, we were transported into the world of Mexico. Bright colours leapt out of the screen and music echoed through the cinema. Within minutes we were enchanted by the film. From the beginning we are introduced to a Mexican boy, Miguel Rivera. He is in love with music and strives to be like his hero, a famous musician, the late Ernesto de le Cruz. Due to events in the past, his family hate music and forbid Miquel to play his guitar, instead they encourage him to join the family’s shoe making business. After a number of events, Miguel finds himself in the land of the dead in order to find Ernesto de la Cruz. In his journey he finds out more about his ancestors and the real stories of the past. It is beautifully heart warming and original in its narrative. The film is set during Mexicos’ Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) where the dead come to the land of the living. Surprisingly it battles themes such as death and mourning extremely elegantly. It puts an optimistic spin on such dark themes. I urge you to watch this with children or even without. Bring tissues and be ready to be transported to the land of the dead.

WHEN A LOVED ONE PASSES AWAY Knowing what to do when someone passes away is always one of those experiences for which in life we never become an expert in, as most of us will only arrange on average between 1-2 funerals in our lifetime. As well as having to cope emotionally there can seem to be lots of decisions that you have to make in a short period of time. In the initial days depending on where the person has passed away will depend on what you need to do next and speaking with friends and family or the funeral director is a good way to get advice. It always seems like there is lot’s to do on top of making the initial arrangements and it can be important to give yourself time to make the right decision for you. The best advice when looking for a funeral is always to shop around to make sure you get the service which you are looking for and

that is right for you. There will be many people who are there to support you from Clergy to Civil Celebrants, Grief counselling as well as your initial contact with the funeral director you choose. On this page are funeral services available to you in the local community.
