On 8th March, Cathy Grimmet gave us an insight into the Back to Back Court 15 project in Birmingham, -a time capsule left to show how Courtyards were crammed into the area and how over half of Birmingham’s population lived in this type of housing at one time during the 19th century.
Our second meeting on 22nd March was led by Pat Roberts, a leading member of our group. We moved from the poor of the last meeting to the richness of Faberge eggs – or at least Wombourne Wives version of them! Pat provided polystyrene eggs, sequins in various colours and sizes and left us to design our own unique Faberge eggs. Concentration was intense!!! Watch out Faberge there is competition in Wombourne.
Our next 3 meetings at 8pm at the Venerable Bede are
26th April – Apley Farm with Lord Gavin Hamilton
10th May – Remember the Swinging Sixties with Ray Sturdy
24th May – ‘ Mary Quant’ with Ruth Lowe
