Dear Reader, Since my last column, Wednesfield has enjoyed a double success (more if you count our Olympic and Paralympic medal winners – well done Kyle and Kristian). Firstly, we managed to achieve our target of £4,000 for the Christmas Lights Appeal – in fact we smashed it, ending up with £5625, which will greatly improve the lights in the village from last year. Read more on page 30. Our second triumph came when we won a Silver Award for Wednesfield In Bloom at the ceremony in Aldridge in September. The details of this and future plans are on page 18.

While we would have obviously preferred a Gold, we were very pleased with our accomplishment, especially as it was the first time we had entered the campaign. Both of these initiatives were backed by the community volunteer group Hands On Wednesfield (HOW) with very little support from local businesses (with a couple of notable exceptions). We’re very lucky to have a group like this, with people prepared to give up their own time (and sometimes money) to improve Wednesfield. Brownhills and Aldridge both received a Gold Award at the In Bloom event, which shows what can be achieved if business owners support local volunteers. Food for thought! Some of you may be new readers and possibly only picked up the magazine to see the photos of the children starting school for the first time this month. If you have anything you would like to contribute or have any comments about the magazine, I always welcome feedback. The next issue will be out slightly earlier than normal as some of my clients like to get their message out well before the Festive Period. If you would like to promote your business, get in touch today as this one fills up fast. I’ll be in a buoyant mood by then as I will be finishing my chemotherapy. Thanks again to all those who continue to send messages of support and encouragement. As always, our advertisers are vitally important to the continuation of this magazine. Please have a look at their adverts and if you do purchase anything from them, PLEASE TELL THEM YOU SAW THE ADVERT IN THE WEDNESFIELD MAGAZINE!!! Enjoy your read – see you in December!

Al Anon

A Local Group Helping Families By Simon Archer Live With Alcoholism

eye-opening, doesn’t come close and it really hit home that this is a disease that causes mayhem for everyone concerned. Luckily, these speakers were all recovering (you never fully recover) alcoholics, who were able to say how their lives have been completely transformed. In fact, I knew one of them and I can say, I would never have known he had ever had a problem, such is the improvement in his life.

I like a drink. In fact, sometimes I like a few and I’ve often wondered if I may be considered an alcoholic, but after attending a couple of meetings of Al Anon (for research purposes!) I am fairly certain I’m not. Al Anon have been meeting on a Wednesday evening at Hope House in Wilkes Street, Willenhall for just over 4 months. Their aim is not to find ways of helping people to get their loved ones to stop drinking, but to offer support and advice to those living with an alcoholic. The Alcoholic doesn’t attend the meeting, just the husband, wife, parent, sibling or friend of the person affected. Each meeting begins with a reminder of the AA Twelve Steps programme and to reflect why the group meet. They then go around the table to allow members to share their story – but it’s not compulsory! There are over 800 support groups across the UK, with many more across the world. You can even attend on several American cruise ships, so it’s not hard to find one close to you – visit http://www.al-anonuk.org.uk/ or ring 020 7403 0888 to find your nearest if you aren’t in Willenhall. It was pointed out to me on my first visit, that ‘No human being can stop an alcoholic from drinking, other than the alcoholic themselves’. Once you have realised that, you can start to change yourself and your attitude to them. But it ain’t easy! It’s a grey area as to what an alcoholic actually is, but essentially, it’s about not being able to stop drinking, putting the booze before everything and everyone one else, denying you have a problem and lying about the extent of your habit. On my second visit, I listened to a couple of guest speakers from Alcoholics Anonymous, who shared their experiences with the group. To say this was

As it was put to me, to start the recovery process you usually, have to hit rock bottom, but unfortunately, for some, that means death and in a bizarre way, that can be something of a relief to those left behind, in the same way that losing someone to cancer can provide a release. The people I met, had an array of stories to share, some quite sad, some absolutely desperate, and some had lost loved ones to this condition. Even those that have lost someone, still attend, which helps them come to terms with their tragedy. With alcohol, it’s not just about watching someone you love, decline in health. There’s also the financial aspect, with some losing jobs, houses and running up horrendous credit card bills. The group don’t pretend to have a magic wand, but are very welcoming and many feel this is an extension of their family and a great help as they are able to talk to others who are facing the same struggle as them. I don’t mind saying that I was quite emotional, the first time I went, as these people are lovely ordinary folk, who reveal to others their feelings and experiences and in some cases it can be quite unpleasant to hear what they are going through. Privacy and the absolute need for anonymity, prevents me from revealing details, but rest assured, some of these people are at their wits end and Al Anon helps them get from week to week without them having some kind of breakdown. Al Anon is self-funding and receives no help whatsoever, from any external organisation. Al-Anon does not offer advice or counselling, but members give each other understanding, strength and hope. If you think they can help you, pop along on Wednesay at 7.30pm. The meeting lasts for an hour and a half.

Emma

Wolverhampton North East MP, Emma Reynolds talks about the forthcoming EU Referendum. my priority now is holding the government to account so that we secure the best possible deal for Wolverhampton. It is important that I hear your views about what new relationship you want between the UK and the European Union. I know that many voters have concerns about immigration. At the same time we also need the best possible economic deal with European countries to continue to attract international companies like JLR and UTC which are investing in Wolverhampton and creating jobs.

Ken Purchase I was deeply saddened to hear of the death of my predecessor Ken Purchase at the age of 77. Ken served as MP for Wolverhampton North East from 1992 to 2010 with great distinction. He was a brilliant debater and public speaker, with a powerful voice that he used to memorable effect in the House of Commons. Ken served as a councillor for 20 years before being elected as an MP. He was recognised by his fellow councillors early on for his talent and oratory. Both as a councillor and as an MP, he worked hard to establish the excellent community relations that we enjoy today in Wolverhampton. Alongside his good friend and colleague, the late Dennis Turner, he helped create the Wolverhampton Council for Community Relations, which later became the Inter-Faith Network. Ken was a true public servant who championed the people of Wolverhampton. He was a great advocate for Wolverhampton’s successful bid to become a city in 2000. He was a man of great conviction who never forgot his roots in our local area. He went into politics because of his passion for fighting for a fairer society. He cared deeply about standing up for the disadvantaged and about serving his constituents.

Therefore over the summer, I launched a survey to give people the chance to let me know their opinions. Many constituents have already taken the opportunity to participate. Anyone who wants to complete the survey can do so at www.emmareynolds.org.uk. Ashmore Park Community Association 20th anniversary and Blue Plaque I was delighted to attend the Ashmore Park Community Association’s 20th anniversary celebration at The Hub in Ashmore Park. The Association does an excellent job organising events for the local community and it could not operate without the many volunteers who generously give up their own free time. As part of the celebrations, the first Wolverhampton Civic Society Blue Plaque in Wednesfield was unveiled. The plaque commemorates the Ashmore Park colliery which stood on the site of The Hub. The plaque was unveiled by Councillor Phil Bateman MBE and is a reminder of Wednesfield’s rich history.

Britain and the European Union I campaigned for a remain vote in the EU referendum campaign. However, people across Wolverhampton voted decisively in favour of leaving. As your MP, I fully accept the result and Emma Reynolds can be reached on 01902 397698 or by e-mail on emma.reynolds.mp@parliament.uk

In My View Thoughts of Cllr Phil Bateman MBE

Danelaw extending from the North of England. This battle was one of the most important historical battles ever fought in England. If the Danish Kings had won, then the chances are we would all be ordering our beers today in Danish! It was that important as a battle. The public has turned out in big numbers and the Village has welcomed this volunteer led event, with smiles and with pride. It has also signalled clearly that history does have a great role in drawing attention and creating crowds, and of course the crowds have to have refreshments, food and other services to supply them with all they require. In short we have the start of an economic generator. Wednesfield is also promoting the Wyrley & Essington Canal, putting ad hoc Canal Festivals together. This is attracting interest and support and in August around a thousand people came together to hear and see the Canal Festival with live music. This will likely take place again next year! This builds on the canal and its industrial heritage.

I have strongly felt that our Wolverhampton City’s history in all its richness and form should be used to deliver economic regeneration and prosperity for all. Here in the North East of the City, our Wednesfield Community has embraced its history with some gusto in recent years. Much focus on local history has come alive since the Wednesfield History Society was formed a couple of years ago. I think I can say that The Village has embraced its history with some good effect!

The canal I believe is 220 years old next year. To date we have had numerous floating markets, plus we also have attracted the very popular Narrow Boat Cruises, to come and overnight here in Wednesfield. Last year those cruises and the casual leisure boater added some £10,000 of spend to our High Street! This year looks even better. This is new money for traders here in our Village. Plus, we have had a great turnout from local people, who themselves walk and enjoy and spend their money along the tow path access to leisure and retail sites. The canal is soon to become a Local Nature Reserve. This will increase footfall again and attract extra people from all over the Country.

It is my belief that Wednesfield is putting into practice in a marvellous way its history, drawing attention, creating interest, and delivering voluntary leisure events based around our mediaeval and industrial heritage that we have here.

AS I mentioned earlier I know from the statistics that I am keeping that Narrow Boats have boosted the Village economy by an estimated £10,000 last year by NB overnights, and this year up until June we had a similar figure- so I am estimating that a £20,000 statistics is more than likely.

The model does work, and the interesting what our Village of Wednesfield was grows every month. Let me explain the Volunteers of Wednesfield History Society has now put on two Battle re-enactments which explain the ‘Battle of Wodensfield’ in 910AD. When Anglo Saxons stopped the

We are using our industrial heritage to discover new markets as we use our history to good avail. What I would like to see now is this Wolverhampton City Council also helping a little more. That is on my ‘To-Do’ List for 2017!

Silver for Wednesfield Bloomers! Project leader, Simon Archer, added “This is the first time the village has taken part and to come away with a silver is a commendable result. While we would have liked to have done better, we can now learn from the experience and find ways to improve for 2017.”

Wednesfield In Bloom came back with a Silver award from the Britain In Bloom ceremony in Aldridge in September.

Many local groups were involved in the venture, such as Tom’s Tots, the Children’s Village, Princes Trust, St Thomas’ Church, the Gurdwara Sikh Temple, Ashmore Park CA, The History Society, St Patrick’s School, Wolverhampton Scouts, The British Legion, Wolverhampton City Council and the Canal & Rivers Trust.

Dozens of towns, villages and cities from around the Midlands attended the event, although Wednesfield were the only representatives from Wolverhampton. The initiative was funded by community volunteer group Hands On Wednesfield and Chair of HOW, James Clarke, said, “I was really impressed by what the group achieved and was pleased to see how well the community worked together to put on such an impressive show for the judges” A few local businesses supported the campaign, including Skitts, Nat West, Wolverhampton Homes, Co-op Funerals, Compton Hospice, The Royal Tiger, Age UK and Sphinx Tattoos, but it is hoped more will make an effort next year. Anyone wishing to help with the 2017 campaign can get in touch with Simon on 07534603662 or follow the group’s activity on facebook by ‘liking and following’ the Wednesfield In Bloom page.

Do Try This At Home……. To make the best use of the lovely produce on offer at Corbelli’s, try the following simple menu to impress friends and family. Momma’s Minestrone Chop 2 onions, 2 carrots, 2 sticks of celery, 1 spring cabbage and a handful of celery leaves and parsley. Heat a large saucepan and saute the carrots, onions and celery in 4 tbsp of olive oil for 10 mins. Add a 450g tin of chopped tomatoes and pour in 2 litres of vegetable stock and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat, cover and simmer for 20 mins. Add 1kg fresh/frozen broad beans, a 450g tin of cannellini beans, the cabbage, parsley, celery leaves and 100g of spaghetti (broken into small (3cm) pieces. Cook for another 6 mins, then season to taste. Ladle into large warmed bowls and sprinkle grated parmesan over the top. Serve with focaccia or ciabatta bread.

pieces and warm through for another minute. Squeeze in, the juice of one lemon, then add this to the rice and mix thoroughly.

Serve with shavings of the best Parmesan you can afford and enjoy! Tiramisu Add 3 tbsp of sugar to 6 egg yolks. Beat well until the mixture is light and creamy. Add 500g mascarpone and around 25ml of cognac or brandy, and beat well. With an electric or hand whisk, beat 6 egg whites until stiff. Fold the beaten egg whites into the mascarpone mixture.

Lobster and Prawn Risotto Melt 75g butter in a large frying pan and saute a finely chopped onion for about 10 mins. Add 350g risotto/Arborio rice. Cook the rice for 5 mins, stirring all the time. Add a glass of white wine and cook until the mixture starts to dry up. Add 900ml of (preferably fish) stock, one ladle at a time – each time waiting until the mixture absorbs the last one. Do this until all the stock has been used. Turn down to the lowest heat to keep warm, while you prepare the remaining ingredients.

Pour 350ml of coffee (preferably espresso, but ordinary will do) into a shallow dish along with the another 25ml or brandy/cognac and 1 teaspoon of cocoa powder. Stir well. One at a time, quickly dip each of 15 (sponge) lady fingers in the coffee mixture and line the bottom of a glass dish, approximately 20cm round or square. Once the bottom of the dish is covered in an even layer of lady fingers, top with 1/2 of the mascarpone mixture. Dust with 1/2 of the cocoa. Repeat with another 15 lady fingers layer, then finally the remaining mascarpone and a final dusting of cocoa powder. Chill in the fridge for about 4 hours, then serve!

In a separate pan, heat another 50g of butter and saute a clove of crushed garlic and a little fresh or dried parsley for one minute. Add 12 large prawns and a whole cooked lobster (or other seafood such as scallops), cut into bite-size

Wednesfield Teacher’s Hungary Visit this rural Hungarian school with a partner school here in the West Midlands.

This issue has become important to him after teaching many students who have relocated from Eastern Europe and Hungary in particular and who have faced many issues both financially and culturally in adapting when relocating. Patrick Ryan, from Hyde Road in Wednesfield, is to visit and volunteer at a rural Hungarian school, in a bid to forge links with this school and local Wednesfield schools.

Patrick has received help and support from The Mayor of Wolverhampton, Barry Findlay and Wednesfield councillors Greg Brackenridge & Bhupinder Gakhal. He has also been assisted by Jet 2 Airlines and Tara Recruitment Agency (ethical teacher supply agency).

As a secondary school teacher who has worked at Moseley Park, Pool Hayes, North East Wolverhampton & SWB Academies, Patrick feels our local community and schools need greater links and community programmes - even more so post Brexit - to promote community cohesion.

The visit is between 2nd & 9th Oct 2016 & and Patrick will blog about it on his educational blog which reaches thousands of educational professionals in over 100 countries: https://lifeatdivisionnasuwt.wordpress.com/

Coincidentally, after he started to create this project, he found that Wolverhampton and the area he is visiting in Hungary (Koyabana) are twinned, which is a nice additional link. Many children from rural areas of Eastern European countries such as Dabos in Hungary are being denied access to a good start in life through the lack of formal education due to the Governments of these countries not having the funding to support rural schools. Patrick will travel to Dabos in Hungary and work in a rural school that supports students from the surrounding 13 villages in order explore how he could support these students and communities in the longer term. He would also like to connect

Let There Be Light!

Well Extra Christmas Lights In Wednesfield……..

Local Community Volunteer group Hands On Wednesfield have produced a small Christmas miracle to brighten up the village over the festive period. Not only have they reached their target of £4,000, but they have surpassed that figure and managed an amazing £5625 in total. Donations have come from local people, councillors, community associations, Wednesfield Rotary and a couple of local businesses ranging from £5 right up to £1200. Chair of HOW, James Clarke said, “We are really pleased with the outcome, because we honestly didn’t think we would pull it off”. He added, “With an extra £2000 we can look to installing more lights, and buying and insuring a living Christmas tree in the village for Christmases in the future.”

P26

The Lights Switch on will take place at 5pm on Thursday 24th November. As usual, Signal 107 will be in attendance with their roadshow and there will be a charity market in the High Street throughout the afternoon. Santa will be in his sleigh for photos with little (and some big) children and there will be a couple of fairground attractions from 3pm. There will also be a Carol Concert involving local schoolchildren at St Thomas’ Church. As usual, the road will be closed for part of the afternoon, so buses will be temporarily re-routed. The organisers hope they event will be well attended and that the weather holds out until the Mayor of Wolverhampton, Barry Findlay flicks the switch.

A full day of activities were laid on throughout The Hub to showcase the lovely facilities of the building which was opened in 2014. SCARF (Schools and Community Arts Resource Facility) held a mask making workshop, Zac’s Wild Encounters brought along a number of creatures for the children to learn about and there was also; face painting, gym sessions, art and photograph exhibitions, a dance display by JSDA and first aid demos from St John’s Ambulance. Visitors were treated to a buffet and the hard working volunteers served drinks throughout the afternoon. The Charity also unveiled a blue plaque to commemorate those who worked at Ashmore Park Colliery from 1875 to 1948 and who lost their lives at the pit. Cllr Phil Bateman and Suhail Rana, Chairman of Wolverhampton Civic & Historical Society spoke about the historic impact of the colliery on the area. Chair of the CA, Ann Wood, revealed the new

Remembrance Day Plans

The people of Wednesfield will be out in force next month as we remember those that have fallen, while serving their country. This year, Remembrance Day falls on Sunday 13th November and as has become the custom, ex-servicemen and women, local councillors, Scouts, Guides and others will march from the Royal British Legion in Vicarage Road, to St Thomas’ Church at 9am. A service will then take place at the church at 10 o’clock, with a service in the Remembrance Gardens following shortly afterwards. Proceedings will end with a march back to the British Legion for some well-deserved refreshment!

Memories of Our Wednesfield Local Historian, Ray Fellows looks back at number 60 Wolverhampton road In the August/September issue of the Wednesfield Magazine I did a piece about the Tram service and how it had been extended to New Street on the 31st October 1904 and when the crowds on the corner of New Street, by the lamp standard, came out to greet the arrival of car 4. To celebrate the event, the house at the terminus was given the name plaque Lorain Villa. Following on from this I did a little bit of research to try and find which house the plaque had been put on. Looking at some old photographs it was not possible to determine which house the plaque had been put on, but I did come across a photograph of the event.

The first house on the left hand side that I came to had been turned into a business called Live Life Mobility, I noticed that there was a plaque on the building and on the plaque are the words, Lorain Villa, I could not believe it, this is the house that on the 31st of October 1904 was given this plaque to mark the memorable occasion of the first Tram to run to New Street. I had discovered a piece of Wednesfield’s past that had been forgotten.

I decided to have a walk and take a look at some of the houses that are still there today, I walked over Rookery Bridge, obviously all the houses that were once on the right hand side of the road and the old Police Station had been gone since the late 60s/ early 70s.

I spoke to the owner of the house, Simon Dimmack, I told him of the significance of the plaque and that it had been put there to celebrate the extension of the tram route back in 1904 and that the plaque was actually named after the system that was used by the trams, the Lorain system. Simon was pleasantly surprised and said, “I have always thought that it was the name of someone’s daughter who once lived here, I purchased the building around 1999/2000 from Kevin Lloyd who ran an electrical business next door called Kaltec, I also purchased the building at the rear of the property that was once used as stables from the same family about 10 years ago. My business is Live Life Mobility and I am also a property developer, I intend to turn the rear building into 2 one bedroom apartments, subject to planning permission, the apartments would be rented out. The only bit of history that I know about the house was told to me by a customer who said that he was born in the house!”

P56

Please mention Wednesfield Magazine when contacting advertisers


Tom Stevens is that said customer and this is what he has to say. “I was born at number 60 Wolverhampton Road in July 1943 and knew that the plaque was there but never knew that it had anything to do with the Tram system. The garage to the left of my house was once owned by Moses Griffiths, he was a beer retailer across the road at number 33 and sold it on to Jenks & Staines, but it burnt down in the early 1950’s and was later rebuilt.”

afford. Now, if the Tramways Committee would issue cheap weekly tickets (or, perhaps, season tickets would be better) a number of persons would perhaps be able to go home to dinner as well as ride up and down in the morning and evening, yours a WEDNESFIELD RESIDENT.’ So there we have it, a significant piece of Wednesfield History that could well have been lost forever and what’s more we also learn that the old building at the rear of the premises that was once used as stables is still there to this day.

Competition To win a £20 Sainsbury’s gift card, just answer this question; What is the name on the plaque at 60 Wolverhampton Road.

He added, “To the right of my house was a coal wharf named Victoria wharf and the house the other side of that was owned by the Tonks family. The stables at the rear of my house were used by Joseph Foulkes to keep the horses that pulled the waggons and barge’s. My father, William, worked for Foulkes for 45 years. He used to fetch the coal from Holly Bank and Hednesford then he would deliver it during the week. Sid Crutchley also worked for Foulkes and now and again I would go with him on his delivery round, Sid’s brother Ernie used to drive the waggon. His other brother Olf used to run the fish & chip shop in Moat House Lane. At one time people with new born babies were allowed 3cwt of free coal. I moved from 60 Wolverhampton Road to Alma street coal wharf in 1956, I stayed there until I got married in 1964 and then moved to the Scotlands, later we moved to Ridge Lane and then to Victoria Road in around 1968!” Doing a little bit more research into the trams I found a letter in the Express & Star dated November 2nd 1904, just 2 days after the opening of the extension it reads; ‘Sir, at last we have the pleasure of seeing the trams run to our village. Now they have started I should like to make a suggestion or two. Cannot the Tramways Committee see their way to issuing cheap weekly tickets say, 9d. a week for the benefit of those who cannot afford to pay 1 and a half pennies every journey? For instance, workmen, clerks, shop assistants, dressmakers ect, working in the town have to travel up and down every day, having to stay at Wolverhampton for their dinner. This means 1s. 6d. a week, which they can ill

We have also been focusing on our PACT (Partners and Agency Together) priorities, which are priorities, set by you the community at our PACT meetings. We have completed numerous speedwatches with the fire service, patrolled areas of concern with our CCTV Van and robustly patrolled Wednesfield High Street where we are stamping out ASB, which resulted in a male being arrested for breaching his conditions.

The team have remained as proactive as ever, by arresting persons for Burglary, shoplifting from Bentley Bridge, causing criminal damage in Tithe Road and the theft of a pedal cycle whereby the offender was charged and sent straight to prison!!
