Castle Bromwich dot net is a new site devoted to everyone’s fave Bromwich, apart who those of you who prefer other Bromwiches. It’s got a blog, a forum, events listings, all sorts of local info. It’s really nice.
I’m not a Castle Brom expert and I clicked on the Parish Council section expecting minutes of the latest meeting, but instead found myself reading about:
“the primary concerns of the Council were the primitive sewage systems which the Medical Officer of Health believed caused widespread Scarlet Fever. By the start of the twentieth century sewage improvement schemes were started, but it was to be a further twenty-five years before they were fully effective.”
I hope they’ve sorted that out, best of luck with the blog — local blogs is the future.
