Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes to The Bloxwich Telegraph

Bloxwich Telegraph Header

Following the recent Bloxwich Telegraph/BNN news service poll, and the low response to that poll, I have decided that, moving forward, the website will now become more of a feature-based magazine, with much less emphasis on time-sensitive news content and more articles on local topics, especially heritage.

This means that over the coming weeks and months there will be a number of changes in site design and content, notably more new local history related articles, plus upgrades to current content, and there will also be more links to other locally and regionally-relevant sites. All these features will be added as time permits.

It may also be possible, I hope, to do more to feature local organisations and institutions, so if this sounds like you, please do get in touch via the Contact page!

No news is good news

Old-style news will now take a back seat here on the website, though we will continue to maintain the site’s news archive and put out site announcements through it.  The social media-based news relay service through the Bloxwich News Network Twitter feed and Facebook page will also continue to operate as long as there is a need for it.

More as it happens – and meanwhile, watch for the ch-ch-ch-ch-changes!

The people of Bloxwich and district are well-known for their interest in local history and heritage, whether it be of people and places,  pubs and parks, chapels and churches, or ghosts and goings-on in their own area.

And both The Bloxwich Telegraph and its predecessor The Bloxidge Tallygraph are well-known for supporting that interest.

Now, our readers can look forward to reading a range of local history articles penned by our editor, Stuart WIlliams – all within these pages. Some of these will be new, others will be updates or expansions of past features we have published over the years.

You can even look forward to some spooky fiction around Hallowe’en time…

First up will be a short potted history of Bloxwich, entitled Bloxwich – Then and Now. Watch this space!
