A Very Happy New Year to all our readers (and advertisers) - hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. 2019 was certainly a very strange year - with no-one knowing what Brexit will mean to the survival of the UK (not even the leaders), referendums, elections with surprise results and Birmingham Council getting rid of most of its staff and workers, replacing them with consultants and volunteers. Let's hope that when we reach 2021, we will all know just where we all stand.

Some awful things happening around the world with New Zealand shaking itself to bits, Australia burning to a crisp and other countries drowning in deluges of rain, millions of immigrants walking and sailing in small boats to a promise of a 'better life', spam and fraudsters at every turn, drugs readily available (even in prison), convicted murderers and terrorists being let out to kill again, nearly every country in the world fighting with another country, masses of false goods being imported and millions of PLASTIC toys being produced, and to start 2020 the threat of WW3!. What a mess! We don't understand just what the 'Clean Air Zone' will mean to us in the Jewellery Quarter - if the Council ever get it set up! Also, the removal of the Perry Barr Flyover despite thousands of objections and the everincreasing fiasco of the Games. Never mind we must stay positive.

Banksy

We have included an item about the Banksy graffiti he painted on the Vyse Street Rail bridge on Vyse Street - it certainly caused a sensation - just hope it doesn't encourage more graffiti 'artists' to spray the wall may be a good idea to 'List' the wall and tunnels, eh? December was a case of "Hello" to Banksy and "Goodbye" to the TSB Bank, as yet another bank bites the dust! Corner Tenby Street North & Tenby Street - This development has been taken over by a Chinese developer who will shortly be starting the work. The cemetery railings are looking very smart. The way they have matched the 'towers' with the one surviving tower is to be admired but not very happy about putting the 'Boulder Stone' behind bars! Welcome back to Russell Poulton who left the Council a couple of years ago - he worked in the Conservation Department mainly concerned with the Jewellery Quarter. He has now taken a post with The Canal and River Trust in Aqua House, Lionel Street, as Enterprise Manager, and no doubt we will be meeting up with him again very soon. As I always say, "Once you work or live in the Jewellery Quarter it is as if there is a piece of elastic attached between you and the Clock which keeps pulling you back - there is no escape!"

BAO Launch Business Course for Creative Entrepreneurs A new course aimed at creative entrepreneurs, led by Dr Gordon Hamme, will take place at the Birmingham Assay Office in March 2020. The 12-week, fortnightly course,

What to do if you see someone breaking hallmarking law A real frustration for jewellers who make sure they comply with hallmarking law is seeing instances of others flouting the law and apparently getting away with it, selling items without a valid UK hallmark. The hallmark is a vital form of consumer protection because you can’t judge the composition of a metal item just by sight or touch. Consumers need to know that what they are buying is the real thing, and that it is worth what they are paying for it. The hallmark provides that assurance. The fact that many sellers don’t comply with hallmarking law is a recurring theme in queries raised with the BHC, and also at the NAJ.

based on Hamme’s PhD thesis ‘Crafting the 21st century UK ArtisanSilversmith’, explores all the elements needed to develop a commercially viable, craft business. Students will explore their business ideas by way of experimental real-world experiences whilst learning. The jargon lite programme follows the principles of the successful Finnish Team Academy course, which Hamme studied, is designed to be more fluid and flexible than a standard business course We are hearing of this happening with sellers in shops, at craft fairs and also o n l i n e. R e c e n t press coverage of the survey by the WRi on behalf of the BHC and The Goldsmiths’ Company revealed the p o s s i bl e l i ke l y extent of online sellers flouting the law: a third of “gold” jewellery sold online is suspected to be fake. The BHC has received reports of items listed as Vermeil without saying that the item is plated; items listed online as 14k but with no legal UK hallmark, and sellers failing to display the Dealer’s Notice. Amongst Christmas promotions there were instances of items described as gold in the main listing, but the small print shows that the item

aimed at artist craftspeople The course covers a range of topics including marketing and sales, finance, intellectual property rights and small batch manufacturing and a final day mock ‘Dragons’ Den’ to financiers. Industry experts, such as leading law firm, Barker Brettal, who specialise in Intellectual Property rights, will be just one of the guest specialists offering practical advice and guidance throughout the course. Other guest speakers include an industry entrepreneur, marketeer, and financier. Hamme said: “This course is ideal for anyone looking to launch their craft idea and skills into a commercially viable business through a practical, pragmatic, experiential, ‘learning by doing’ business programme.” Both the National Association of Jewellers’ Education Trust and The Benevolent Society welcome funding applications for bursaries from those wishing to undertake this course. Those applying successfully for funding can anticipate having a significant percentage of the course fee paid. Birmingham Assay Office will be holding an open evening on 16th January 2020 for those wishing to find out more about the Business Course for Creative Entrepreneurs.

Councillor Phil Davis - City Heritage Champion Councillor Davis, who represents Billesley Ward, has been Birmingham's Heritage Champion since 2012. Appointed by the Leader of the Council, he aims to provide a voice and focus for heritage and conservation within the Council and the wider community. He chairs the Heritage Strategy Group; this provides a network and link for heritage groups and funders and supports Birmingham's successful Heritage Week, held each September. He is a former English Heritage Commissioner, was founder chair of the Local Authorities World Heritage Forum (LAWHF) and chairs the Jewellery Quarter Development Trust. The Grade 1 listed Wake Green Road pre-fabs are in Councillor Davis's ward of Billesley. Cllr Davis said: "It's a pleasure to receive recognition for my work supporting heritage and conservation. This is mostly about bringing people together to celebrate our city's fantastic industrial and social history, plus the skills and diversity we have here in Brum. "As a kid coming into town from Winson Green on the 96 bus, I was fascinated by the Victorian houses I saw and the industrial streets of Hockley. It's a privilege to play a part in winning greater recognition for what this history means to the present and future of our city, region and country."

JQBID Chair Steps Down The Chair of the Jewellery Quarter Business Improvement District is to stand down after four years at the helm. Nicola Ridler, who has been BID Chair since 2016 is to stand down with Henrik Skouby, Director of electroplating company, E. C. Williams, replacing Nicola as successor. The JQBID, which is now in its second term, is a defined geographic area within the Jewellery Quarter, in which companies pay an extra levy on their rates to fund additional services such as events and initiatives. Nicola Ridler was appointed BID chair in 2016 and has been supporting a team of staff to help spearhead improvements to the Jewellery Quarter’s business environment and enhance the area as a place to live, work, visit and invest in. As Chair of the BID, Nicola was instrumental in setting up many of the BID’s projects including the Jewellery Quarter Festival, the largest annual event delivered by the team. Nicola was hands-on from the very beginning using previous contacts to help source suppliers and being on-site every year to pitch in with the team to deliver a hugely successful event that has grown to welcome over 15,000 visits to the Quarter each year. “My proudest achievement is the team I’ve worked with and all the wonderful people who make it”. In her four years at the Business Improvement District, Nicola has seen the JQBID and JQDT project teams grow from a one-man-band to

a busy hive, employing 11 staff. Among the new members of staff that came into place during Nicola’s time are two employees that make up the Jewellery Quar ter Clean Team which was formed in 2017. This dynamic duo ensures the streets of the Jewellery Quarter are kept clean and litter-free, including reporting fly-tipping and flyposting to the local authorities. In February 2018, the Jewellery Quarter Development Trust, which Nicola is Deputy Chair of, launched the Jewellery Quarter Townscape Heritage (JQTH) project. Through funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund, the JQTH is responsible for the protection and regeneration of the Jewellery Quarter’s industrial middle – supported by an activities programme (funded by the JQBID) to engage with businesses and members of the public. Nicola comments “The JQBID and wider JQDT teams are making huge differences to the future of the Jewellery Quarter and are being instrumental in recognising its past. It saddens me to leave such an incredible and talented group of people behind. Nicola was diagnosed with stage 4 bowel cancer in August of 2017. After being given the horrific news of having a mere 6 months to live, Nicola has defied all odds and is now in year 3 of her diagnosis, having participated in both the Birmingham Half Marathon and Stoma 66 (66 days to reach 66,000 km). “What keeps me going is living by my motto of ‘get up, show up and never give up’.

Sports hospitality agency Eventmasters (based in St Paul’s Square) has again raised thousands of pounds for charities in its annual fund-raising push. At the 30th annual Midlands Sportsman’s Luncheon at Birmingham’s Macdonald Burlington Hotel recently retired former England rugby captain Dylan Hartley, the guest of honour, made cheque presentations to Birmingham Children’s Hospital, Prostate UK, and Scotty’s Little Soldiers.

The third Jewellery Quarter Suit Drive is asking for local businesses and residents to donate smart clothing to help unemployed men and women make that crucial first impression. If clearing out your wardrobe in the New Year was not already on your todo-list, this is the perfect time to declutter your closet while making a big difference to someone else. The JQ Suit Drive will run from 14th January to 18th February and donations can be dropped off at The Big Peg reception (120 Vyse St, B18 6NF) from Monday to Friday between 8:30 AM and 5:30 PM. Items to donate include lightly worn suits, shirts, skirts, trousers, jackets, blouses, dresses, shoes and accessories. All donations will go to Suited for Success who help unemployed people with interview skills and clothes to ensure they have all the tools to make the right first impression. The campaign has been organised in partnership between the Jewellery Quarter Business Improvement District (JQBID), Suited for Success, The Big Peg and GoodGym Birmingham who have come together to support this charity drive in the Jewellery Quarter.

Luke Crane, Executive Director of the JQBID said: “Supporting and raising awareness for our local charities is a key objective at the JQBID. The work done by Suited for Success is instrumental in making sure everyone has an equal opportunity to nail that job interview despite their differing, and often difficult, circumstances. We are confident that the local Jewellery Quarter community will be as generous as they’ve been in previous years and we can’t wait for the donations to start arriving.” Suited for Success is a registered UK charity who provide free highquality interview clothes, styling and interview skills for unemployed men and women who have a confirmed job interview. All clients are given a one-to-one appointment to receive interview coaching and are dressed and styled by volunteers giving them the confidence to succeed. Patricia White, Suited for Success Chief Executive commented: “We're really excited to be working with the JQBID and GoodGym again on this project. The donations raised will make a big difference to support the unemployed men and women we work with to succeed in a job interview, gain employment and change lives”. Volunteers from the local running group GoodGym Birmingham will be sorting and carrying all donations from

The Big Peg to the Suited for Success headquarters as part of their regular weekly charity activities. GoodGym is a running group with a difference that combines regular running and exercise with volunteering and helping local communities. Jonathan Carter, GoodGym Birmingham Run Leader said: “Suited for Success is one of our regular charities and we’re always happy to bring more donations to them. GoodGym is all about getting fit while doing good by helping the local community. The work they do at Suited for Success is amazing, thank you in advance to the Jewellery Quarter community for coming out to support them.” Tara Elwell, Sales & Marketing Manager for The Big Peg said: “The Big Peg is delighted to support the JQ Suit Drive and encourage the local community to get involved and donate. Reception will be accepting donations Monday to Friday 0830 to 1730 hours.”

New Magazine Distribution stands Before Christmas Mark has been busy not only putting the magazines out but also some environmentally friendly card stands for The Hockley Flyer. Each one holds around 20 copies of the magazine. “Most of our regular distribution points were delighted with these and can be seen at many trade counters, museums, shops, bars, restaurants, hotels and anywhere else where we leave the magazines.” A huge thank-you to everyone who helps distribute The Hockley Flyer. We have a few left of these dark grey/black ones, but can get some more, and can even get white ones we have just found out if anyone would prefer one of these. Please email: info@thehockleyflyer.info if you would like us to drop one or another one in to your place, or even exchange for a white one.

The Perspex screen temporarily protecting Banksy’s newest artwork has sold for £2,300 at Fellows Auctioneers in Birmingham. It was sold to Steve Tolley, co-owner of the Bullion Room, a Birmingham-based premier precious metal and jewellery dealer. The screen covered Banksy’s art depicting two reindeers flying away from a bench in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter – highlighting homelessness. With an estimate if £100 - £150, the Perspex increased in price over an eight-day timed sale, eventually selling for £2,300. The Perspex was placed over the Banksy masterpiece to prevent it from being vandalised, and Fellows Auctioneers put the Perspex up for sale, when a more permanent cover was installed. All proceeds are going to Midland Langar Seva Society (MLSS), a brilliant organisation set up to help homeless people in need in the UK. Banksy released an Instagram post in December, which has since had millions of views, revealing his artwork, and highlighting the severe homeless problem in the UK. The reveal led to international coverage, unfortunately resulting in fellow graffiti artists vandalising the piece. Network Rail took the decision to place a protective Perspex screen over the piece, preventing it from being ruined. Unfortunately, another graffiti artist defaced the protective screen, which was then kept by

JQBID, to then be auctioned at Fellows Auctioneers. The screen itself still contains paint marks from being vandalised and was auctioned alongside the bolts used to place it on Banksy’s artwork. Fellows Auctioneers, who hold weekly auctions in Birmingham’s historic Jewellery Quarter, were thrilled to be auctioning the artwork and to play a small part in helping such a great cause. Other contributions from local businesses including the auctioneers have increased the total sum raised to £3,300 for Midland Langar Seva Society. Luke Crane (Executive Director JQBIDS) says: “This piece of art by Banksy was an early Christmas gift – but brings with it a very strong message – a timely reminder that we are facing a nationwide homelessness crisis and we must not forget those in need, especially over the Christmas period. By taking inspiration from the artwork, we have an opportunity here to put the Jewellery Quarter firmly on the map, as the leading light in ending the homelessness crisis that is blighting our inner cities. Money raised through the auctioning of the original Perspex that protected the Banksy mural, will be donated to Midland Langar Seva Society”. Simon Evans Head of Communications - North West & Central, Network Rail added: “’We’re pleased to be able to sell this item, to raise money to help homeless people. Life is strange sometimes. Ordinarily a piece of Perspex is no big deal - but a piece of Perspex that has protected a Banksy - that is a big deal.”

TRAIL 2: Charm Bracelet Trail - Newhall Hill and Frederick Street.

Mark Renn Remembered On the last day of December 2019, it was announced that Mark Renn partner of Renn & Thacker has died after a long illness.

Pavement Trails:

Mark Renn, Mick Thacker, and Laura Potter were the artists commissioned by Groundworks in 1999 to design and fabricate Pavement Trail artworks into paving units and in 2000 these were incorporated into Birmingham City Council's paving improvements to these routes. They were intended to offer residents, visitors, adults, and children the opportunity to enjoy the artworks as both a leisure and educational activity and to enrich the landscape and building heritage of the area.

The two pavement trails were to be:

TRAIL 1: The Findings Trail designed by Laura Potter

The Key: Silent Boots: Rip Van Winkle:1832 200,000 Chartists Met Here: F.A. Cup: Whistles for the Titanic: Mathew Boulton: Turkish Bath: Anchor: The Hockley Flyer: Shrapnel: Bits for Spitfires: School of Jewellery: Peas Like Emeralds: Chamberlain Clock:

The ‘Clockwork Sculpture’ In 2003 Centro commissioned ten new sculptures to adorn travel information points around the City. The ten new artworks have been provided by The Renn & Thacker Partnership. “We are calling the information point sculptures street jewellery.” said Partner Mick Thacker. “They are intended to act as landmarks for travellers and to enhance the areas in which they are located.” All of the artworks express different themes, but all have in common the fact that two Jewellery Quarter companies fabricated them. Form Fabrications (Birmingham) Ltd. were the main fabricator whilst Red Temple provided the bronze elements in two of the sculptures. January 2004, saw the Jewellery Quarter’s very own sculpture installed outside Jewellery Quarter Station, entitled ‘Clockwor k’, and fashioned from stainless steel, cast bronze and brass. Mark Renn explained the ideas behind the work: “Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter is famous for the high quality of the craftsmanship of its jewellers and watchmakers. The 18th and 19th centuries saw the flowering of the industrial revolution in the midlands and the attendant growth of specialised craft industries in the Jewellery Quarter. ‘Clockwork’ celebrates the genius of Jewellers in the Quarter and the scientific and technological advances which occurred here during those two remarkably creative centuries.” January 2020
