Welcome

to the latest issue of The Hockley Flyer I heard a rumour about the possibility of a new Science Museum for Birmingham which at first, I laughed at but a couple of days later a press release outlining proposals appeared in my inbox. ‘Birmingham: City of Ideas’: Developing a new Museum of Science & Industry proposition, and the development of an international flagship museum of science and industry in Birmingham’s city centre. Wonder where it will be built, but the council reckon it could attract one million visitors, contributing £30m to the city and region via tourism and fundamentally increasing engagement in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) via social history, and would also reflects the diversity of Birmingham and its heritage. Perhaps they should never have knocked the old one down in Newhall Street, and what will happen to the ‘Think Tank’?

Winning designs for Proud Host City presentation items revealed

Two manufacturing businesses from the city are benefitting from an opportunity to support the council’s role in welcoming VIPs and dignitaries during the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games. Last year, designers, manufacturers and tradespeople were invited to enter a competition via a procurement process to supply the council with bespoke presentation items, which are traditionally offered by the Proud Host City to people such as Heads of State, dignitaries, representatives from sporting federations and businesses. After judging a wide range of submissions, a panel featuring Council Leader Cllr Ian Ward, Chief Executive Deborah Cadman, and then-Lord Mayor Muhammad Afzal, selected the two concepts they felt best reflected the city of Birmingham – a council investment of £57,000 into local business in the process. One was a Proud Host City coin, designed and manufactured by Deakin & Francis based in the Jewellery Quarter. The other was a

22

Hockley Flyer July 2022 The

Proud Host City bull statue, made by Digbeth-based A.E. Williams. Deakin & Francis, founded in 1786 by Benjamin Woolfield, have over 230 years of heritage. As England’s oldest manufacturing jewellers, the Deakin & Francis factory remains in the same building today as it began in, dating back to the Industrial Revolution. Seven generations later, the business is now managed by brothers Henry and James Deakin. Their coin has an intricate design, with one side showcasing a number of city landmarks including the Hall of Memory, the Sentinel ‘Spitfire Island’ artwork at Castle Vale, the Rotunda, and Library of Birmingham - with the other side displaying the city’s crest and motto ‘Forward’. Renowned merchandising company Touch of Ginger won the second competition tender and appointed A.E. Williams, a renowned pewter item manufacturer, to manufacture the Proud Host City bull on their behalf. Established in 1779 by Thomas W illiams from his home on the Welsh border, making flatware and dishes, the business set up a base in Birmingham in 1840 to take advantage of the demand for pewter items, and by the early 20th Century was producing tea sets for the Ritz hotel in London. In more recent times, the firm has produced props for films, television shows and major stage productions

– and in 2010, a recreation of the Henry VIII Wine Fountain at Hampton Court Palace was unveiled. A.E. Williams are the only company, besides the Royal Mint, to make coinage for the Crown in over 500 years. Visitors use the coins to pay for a goblet of wine from the fountain. Sat on a round base, the bull, complete with a ring through its nose, will be presented in a cylindrical presentation box to those in the privileged position of receiving one. Cllr Ian Ward, Leader of Birmingham City Council, said: “The creation of presentation items for visiting dignitaries is yet another way the Commonwealth Games are about more than just the 11 days of sport taking place this summer. “It has enabled this opportunity for us to suppor t Birmingham’s businesses as we emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic – and show to the world what a creative and skilled place we are. The designs are bold and capture the essence of what our great city is all about. “I’m sure these items will be wellreceived by everyone who is fortunate to get a coin or a bull, and they will help strengthen friendships and relationships with influential representatives of other nations and organisations in the years to come as we seek to solidify the legacy of being the Proud Host City of the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games.” Henry Deakin, Managing Director of Deakin & Francis, said: “We’re delighted that products made here in Birmingham will be travelling all over the world after the Games. The fact they’ve got the Deakin & Francis stamp on them is great as it will get our name out into the public a bit more.” Stephen Johnson, Director at A.E. Williams, added: “We were delighted to be given the opportunity to manufacture the Proud Host City bull. As a company we have a rich history of working with prestigious and highprofile organisations but knowing that this item will be directly promoting our home city of Birmingham to people all over the world is an amazing honour and privilege.” twitter @hockleyflyer


Digital Dealers Notice is the first step

Announcing the HALO Award for online promotion of hallmark

The British Hallmarking Council (BHC) and National Association of Jewellers (NAJ) are proud to announce the launch of the highprofile HALO Award for Hallmarking Awareness and Learning Online. Noel Hunter, Chair of the British Hallmarking Council said, “The hallmark has protected jewellers and consumers for hundreds of years and remains the buyer’s guarantee that they are buying genuine precious metal. This is ever more relevant as the market experiences the rise in the gold price and growth of global internet sales. “The HALO Award is launched to give appropriate recognition to those businesses who are professionally educating the customer online as to what the hallmark is and why it is so important. Hallmarking maybe one of the oldest forms of consumer protection, but this award really encourages retailers to modernise how the integrity of the hallmark is communicated and presented.” Online misrepresentation of jewellery products and the sale of unhallmarked products has given rise to increasing concerns. A third of jewellers see online marketplaces as a threat. Meanwhile only 63% of consumers know what a hallmark is and are therefore not seeking the important reassurance of a hallmark when they buy. Marion Wilson, hallmarking conRead online: www.thehockleyflyer.info

sultant said, “This is a vicious downward spiral. Trading Standards Authorities do not have the resource to enforce hallmarking, particularly online. Consumer knowledge is low, leaving them vulnerable to fraud. Misleading online offers are competing unfairly. The only viable way to break this cycle is consumer education. “The best opportunity to educate the consumer is at the Point of Sale, particularly online. Whilst articles are usually described carefully, the actual word hallmark is conspicuous by its absence from most hallmarking compliant jewellery websites. Consumer awareness will continue

Retail jewellers will be eligible to enter for the Award if they can demonstrate excellence in their online promotion of hallmarking. This may be through a marketing campaign, an audio or video promotion or some other innovative approach to promote consumer awareness. As a first step the new Digital Dealers Notice and accompanying video are now easily downloaded to add to websites or social media and present important information in a simple format. Winners of the HALO Award will receive a magnificent silver salver to hold for a year, high profile recognition through a media campaign and a year’s subscription to the Assay Assured Scheme promoted by the UK Assay Offices. The Award will be presented at the prestigious Benevolent Society event which this year will be staged in the magnificent ballroom of the Grand Hotel, Birmingham on the 8th December.

Intergem presents: The Long Night of the Gemstones Intergem 2022, 23 – 25 September

Idar-Oberstein. Raising awareness of the uniqueness and expertise of the jewellery and gemstone city Idar-Oberstein amongst exhibitors at and visitors to the Intergem fair – this is the goal of the ‘Long Night of the Gemstones’, which is set to take place for the first time on Saturday, 24 September, in the scope of Intergem 2022. On this evening it will be possible to explore seven unique places from 7 pm until midnight. Alongside the tourist highlights relating to gemstones and jewellery, such as the German Gemstone Museum, the German Mineral M u s e u m , t h e W e i h e rs c h l e i f e

Grinding and the Steinkaulenberg gemstone mine, the Industrial Monument Jakob Bengel will also be opening its doors, providing a highly interesting presentation of how fashion jewellery was made up to the 1930s. The museum is open until midnight, with entry free of charge. A visit to the German Gemmological Association and the Department of Gemstones and Jewellery of Trier University of Applied Sciences gives visitors the opportunity to appreciate the importance of training and apprenticeships when it comes to acquiring the necessary skills for stones and jewellery, and the impact that these institutions have worldwide. Free shuttle buses are on hand to enable interested exhibitors and trade visitors, as well as locals, to gain an impression of the seven institutions in a relaxed atmosphere. In addition to free admission and tours, live music, regional beverages, and

culinary treats will also be offered. A visit to the Steinkaulenberg and the Industrial Museum Jakob Bengel requires pre-registration at the Intergem website, as these two institutions can only be practicably visited in the scope of a guided tour. All other attractions can be chosen at will and visited throughout the evening. The Long Night of the Gemstones was presented to visitors and the press for the first time at an opening event on 23 June in the Göttenbach Aula. The video trailer for the event attracted particular interest and the Long Night of the Gemstones was well received by all those present. The Long Night of the Gemstones impressively demonstrates the unique body of expertise accumulated by the Idar-Oberstein region over the course of the centuries, with this expertise continuing to be maintained and passed on today by the German Gemmological Association and the Department of Gemstones and Jewellery of Trier University of Applied Sciences.

HMRC CEO Jim Harra formally opens Birmingham Regional Centre

HMRC formally opens Birmingham Regional Centre

HM Revenue and Customs’ (HMRC) Birmingham Regional Centre and UK Government hub has been formally opened by Jim Harra, HMRC’s First Permanent Secretary and Chief Executive. The state-of-the-art building at 3 Arena Central, situated just off Birmingham’s iconic Centenary Square and adjacent to the recently redeveloped Birmingham Municipal Bank, is home to 4,600 civil servants, including around 3,500 from HMRC. Joining them at the 22,500 m2office are civil servants from the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) and Valuation Office Agency (VOA). Spread across 13 floors, the modern and inclusive working environment will enable improved collaboration and smarter working, set amongst photography of renowned West Midlands landmarks taken by staff. Civil servants began moving into the regional hub on 9 August 2021. The formal opening took place on 30 June 2022 as Jim Harra unveiled the plaque to an audience of local dignitaries and HMRC staff. Jim Harra said: “Birmingham is a vibrant, growing city, and one that’s soon to welcome both athletes and fans from around the world when hosting the Commonwealth Games. “I am delighted to mark the opening of our Regional Centre and UK Government hub at 3 Arena Central. “This development is an important part of HMRC’s transformation into a modern and digitally advanced tax authority and cements our position as an important contributor to the economy and communities in and around Birmingham and the West Midlands. “The inclusive and flexible working Read online: www.thehockleyflyer.info

Victorian Society starts hunt for 2022’s Top 10 Endangered Buildings

The Victorian Society asks the public to nominate threatened Victorian or Edwardian buildings for its 2022 Top 10 Endangered Buildings list. The Victorian Society’s annual Top 10 Endangered Buildings campaign puts a spotlight on England and Wales’s most dilapidated and neglected buildings or structures. This publicity is vital in saving buildings that would otherwise lie forgotten and decaying. This is a fantastic chance to get involved with the fight to save our heritage. Previous entries range from water towers and cranes to stately homes and churches. Recent buildings on the Top Ten from the West Midlands include Icknield Street School (1883), Burslem Indoor Market (1897) in Staffordshire, and Darlington Street Methodist Church in Wolverhampton “Now is your chance to nominate a piece of architecture in your area. Many of the buildings have committed community groups rallying behind them, but funding can be environment has brought our people together and will create greater opportunities for collaboration to make it easier to deliver great services to our customers.” The Birmingham Lord Mayor, Cllr Maureen Cornish, was also in attendance, as were Dame JayneAnne Gadhia, the Chair of the HMRC Board, Angela MacDonald, HMRC’s Deputy Chief Executive and Second Permanent Secretary, Aneen Blackmore, VOA’s Chief Corporate Services Officer, and Gemma Brown, DWP’s Deputy Director of Counter Fraud, Compliance & Debt. Maureen Cornish said: “It was a pleasure to be at the opening of the

difficult to secure. The Top Ten campaign is a way for local authorities and private investors to recognise the potential of these buildings and take steps to secure and revitalise them before it’s too late.” - Griff Rhys Jones, President of the Victorian Society. Nominated buildings or structures must be in England or Wales and built between 1837 and 1914. To nominate email media@victoriansociety.org.uk with the building’s name/location, the year it was built, brief description of its history and/or architecture, why you think it should be in the Top 10 i.e., the threat it is under, and ideally at least one good photo. The deadline for nominations is Tuesday the 30th of August. It is not a voting system – as such there is no benefit to a building being nominated more than once. The final Top 10 list will be announced later this year.

Four projects are being put forward by the city council for funding consideration should the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games be delivered under budget. A report to the council’s Cabinet on June 28 outlines details of the proposals, which would be formally put to Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport (DCMS) should underspends materialise.

Church is to hold a fete all day long in and around the church on Monday 29th August. With sponsors and stallholders already in place, the fete is set fair to raise money towards the church’s project to repair the church and renovate its community facilities. But most of all, the organisers want local residents and visitors to come and have fun. tions, the creation of a new museum for science and industry, a long-term study tracking the impact of the Games on local people and financial support for a bid to host the European Athletics Championships in 2026. The creation of a new museum for science and industry is of interest to The Jewellery Quarter, if it is to replace the one we lost all those years ago

‘Birmingham: City of Ideas’: Developing a new Museum of Science & Industry proposition

This would include a STEM (Science, Te c h n o l o g y, E n g i n e e r i n g , a n d Mathematics)-themed programme of cultural activity across the city’s neighbourhoods, and the development of an international flagship museum of science and industry in Birmingham’s city centre.

Plans for the day include a range of stalls featuring local businesses, their products and crafts, music and dancers, bellringers and church tours, food and drink outlets and a raffle. Reverend David Tomlinson says he is excited about the plans that have bene made and optimistic that the fundraising campaign will benefit massively: “In the run-up to the 250th birthday of the Jewellery Quarter’s St. Paul’s Church, our fundraising group is aiming to raise £250,000 for the church’s 250th birthday. I performed the official launch of the fundraising campaign at last year’s summer fete. “Last year’s fete was a wonderful occasion. I believe we can offer even more joyous fun and celebration this year. And the more people spend and donate on the day, the closer the church gets to having the roof repaired, the tower strengthened, and the community facilities modernised. There are still opportunities for sponsors, for stallholders and for volunteers to help make the fete a success.” Anyone who would like to know more about becoming a sponsor, having a stall at the fete, or helping with the arrangements for the fete is asked to contact David Kidney:

Any new museum building would be a part of a mixed-use neighbourhood and create new open spaces and cultural opportunities with activities taking place in different neighbourhoods across the city. The project would work with partners and neighbourhoods to co-create a new museum model that reflects the diversity of Birmingham and its heritage. It would convert increased engagement and understanding of the city’s scientific and industrial heritage into future-facing skills development The proposal being developed is for £300,000 to continue the feasibility work on a new museum and also to run four neighbourhood projects focused on community engagement in cultural activities. Should a new museum operation be realised it is anticipated that it could attract one million visitors, contributing £30m to the city and region via tourism and fundamentally increasing engagement in STEM via social history. twitter @hockleyflyer

water wastage. Not only that, they chose to donate 10% of new client service fees to OneTreePlanted to plant trees across the planet and the salon became a Climate Positive Workforce, with Owner Anil Salhan offsetting the carbon emissions of his staff. Owner of Blacc + Blond, Anil Salhan, commented, “To win the Salon Business Green Salon award and be announced as a finalist in the Most Wanted Awards Sustainability Hero means a great deal to us. We have put so much thought and effort into making our space greener and more sustainable, with the aim to become the most sustainable hair salon on the planet, and we’re delighted the awards have been able to notice this. At Blacc + Blond we never stand still and are always looking for ways to improve. We wanted to make sustainability a lot sexier, more cool, creative, and inclusive for everyone – to take away the confusion and imitation behind it and make it a basic standard for everyone. We’re not just trying make change in the hair salon, we’re trying to make it resonate with everyone, we want it to go beyond our city, our county and the planet and show people we can all do better and we’re just trying to do our part. Hopefully by winning and finalising for these awards it will spread the word on what we are doing, and many other businesses will be encouraged to be eco-friendly too.”
