The Bloxwich Telegraph is Back!

Read all about it graphic

Yes, after a much-needed period of hibernation, The Bloxwich Telegraph is back!

Following a trial roll-out on Twitter and Facebook using some of our best stories from the last few years, which it’s clear that you’ve enjoyed revisiting, as of this weekend we’ve upgraded our hosting and we’re back in action, so expect both improvements to the website and regular updates from now on, using a combination of news posts, articles and social media.

Since its foundation in 2006 as The Bloxidge Tallygraph, The Bloxwich Telegraph has aimed to support local people, publish local news and promote local events in Bloxwich and district plus more recently, through our social media, Willenhall.  Now, we’re also looking to extend some coverage to Walsall town centre.  We’re interested in everything from church and club events to major local developments.

You are invited to send in your local news stories and press releases, no matter how small, as well as events info and reports, via this site’s Contact page (which you’ll find under the About menu tab).  You can also get our attention through our Twitter feed @BloxTelegraph

We’re also glad to continue helping to relay news from other local sources, and will be actively doing so via social media.  Be sure to tag us on Twitter – if it’s locally relevant, we’ll give you an RT!  Local news can also be posted on our Walsall North News Facebook page.

It will take time to get everything moving again, so give it a while and keep coming back. If you want to keep updated with all our news posts, be sure to subscribe using the button on the front page.

The Bloxwich Tardis on Elmore Green is a steel time machine celebrating the history and heritage of Bloxwich – but what do you know about Bloxwich past?

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!
