    Aston Manor Road Transport Museum Ltd

    After an uncertain 12 months the Trustees of Aston Manor Road Transport Museum are pleased to announce they have been able to acquire a lease on new premises in Aldridge and are looking forward to re-opening early in the New Year.

    Thanks to Mike Cooper and Adrian Hipkins who, after reading about our plight in the Express and Star, came forward with an offer of a lease on their premises in Shenstone Drive, Aldridge.

    Both parties recognise the uncertainty of restarting a venture such as this in the current economic climate but it is hoped that with the continued local support the museum will be able to go from strength to strength.

    The Trustees are looking for volunteers to help create and staff the Museum when it opens to the public. While, volunteers with specialist skills are also needed to assist in the restoration of some of its vehicles anyone with time on their hands who feel they would like to contribute towards the project will be made more than welcome.

    The Museum would also welcome individuals, or local companies, sponsorship of either the museum or its exhibits.

    If you feel you can help the museum in anyway please contact us on 0121 308 0659 or 0121 308 4400

    New Aldridge studio offers fascinating glimpse of times past

    A new studio in Aldridge, which houses a fascinating collection of historical maps that have been digitally reproduced directly from antique originals using state-of-the-art equipment, is set to be unveiled in the Aldridge on 1 & 2 December 2012

    The Mapseeker Studio in Aldridge High Street is the first of its kind in the area and will be hosting a special opening weekend on Saturday 1 and Sunday 2 December 2012 where it will be presenting a diverse and unique range of artistic and historical products for the first time.

    Located in a prime position outside the new Olympic Gold post box on the High Street, the new studio will offer visitors a rare and compelling insight into the past.

    Supported by the Aldridge Business Partnership and Walsall Council’s Town Centre Management team, the Mapseeker Studio will exhibit maps spanning the past 400 years of cartography incorporating maps of early global exploration, Britain and Europe through the millennium, war and conflict, coastal surveys, town and country surveys and road and railway routes.

    As well as offering a fresh insight into the history of Britain, the studio will also provide a fantastic facility for local schools.

    Six local artists will be based there, giving pupils the chance to talk to the artists about their work, as well as observing a range of styles and techniques through teaching workshops and demonstrations.

    A dedicated study area, linked via Wi-Fi and an interactive screen to iPad, will enable teachers and students to view over 3,000 historical maps and other resources at a detailed level.

    “Teaching our past has never been so engaging,” said Paul Leslie Line, managing director for Mapseeker Studio.

    “We see the studio as an engaging social hub for the whole community and look forward to hosting regular evening events including visiting art exhibitions, guest speakers and book signings.

    “The studio will also soon stock a wide selection of geographical-history and local history atlases alongside art and educational books, as well as offering a wide range of photo and multimedia printing services and bespoke picture framing.

    “With six local and exceptionally talented artists based here, the studio will be the place to secure that special gift, whatever the occasion”.

    Walsall Council Coalition’s portfolio holder for regeneration, Councillor Adrian Andrew said: “It’s marvellous that a studio of this kind will soon be open to the public in Aldridge.

    “This promises to be a fantastic resource tool for local people who are fascinated with history, and an excellent workshop for our local schools.

    “Warm commendation has to be extended to the Aldridge Business Partnership who, together with the council’s Town Centre Management team have worked with Paul to bring this about.”

    The six talented artists who will be based at the new studio are Anna Crook, Debbie Flenley, Kate Taylor, Lynn Hughes, Steve Lilly and Victoria France.

    Fashion crosses over for church’s grand opening

    A Walsall church is to mark the grand opening of its new town centre building with a fashion show for young people.

    The Rock Church has teamed up with the Keep Growing Walsall fashion project for the fun event
    starting at 7.00pm on Saturday, December 1.

    The venue is Lichfield House, opposite the Lichfield Street branch of Morrisons.

    A five-storey office block that was home to NHS staff until December last year, the building has been used by the Rock Church since April.

    Now the church wants to formally declare its new HQ open to the community – with Walsall Young Ambassador to the Mayor and Miss Teen winner Jessica Watts set to cut the ribbon before the
    catwalk show gets under way.

    The Rock Church has been meeting in other venues around Walsall since 2008 – at one point even using an auditorium at the Showcase Cinema at junction 10 of the M6. It now has its main building on the Beechdale Estate, but wanted to establish a presence in the town centre.

    As well as Christian worship, Lichfield House is being used as a base for projects such as the food bank being developed in partnership with other churches and organisations in Walsall.

    Rock Church pastor Ian Evans said: “Since we’ve relocated our Sunday morning services here we have engaged more and more with the community as a result, and our Sunday attendance has been increasing every week. We believe in God’s favour, and this particular building is a great blessing –
    not only for the Rock Church but for other local churches in Walsall who we are working together
    with to express the Christian message.”

    Mr Evans said the involvement of Keep Growing Walsall in the grand opening night was an example of the Rock Church’s growing links with the wider community.

    KGW was formed in the summer with support from other agencies including Pertemps People Development Group, Walsall College, UnLd, and The Future Melting Pot.

    It works to help develop and support young people in different areas of fashion through social enterprises and with the
    support of local businesses and volunteers.

    KGW founder Neville Sinclair said: “We aim to turn the dreams of the young adults we work with into reality, with this being a great way to help them develop.”

    Doors open at 6.30pm for a 7.00pm start, with parking available at the rear of Lichfield House.

    Further information on the Rock Church is available from its website at http://www.therockchurch.co.uk.

    Aldridge Lions Christmas Collections.

    For the next few weekends, the Aldridge & District Lions Club will be out and about in the area collecting for their charity appeal.

    Lions President, Harry Fry, said, “This is a major opportunity during the year when we are able to collect funds for our charity work. It is potentially the largest income we are able to generate and our members are out over each weekend leading up to Christmas.”

    Aldridge and District Lions Club is part of Lions Clubs International and have raised many thousands of pounds over the years. Recent beneficiaries of donations from the Club include Marie Curie Trust, Walsall Arthritis Care and Walsall Arthritis Support Group, Cancer Research, Help for Heroes, RNLI, Aldridge Youth Theatre, Parkinson’s Disease Society and local Scouts and Guides. During the last financial year nearly thirty different organisations and individuals benefited from over £8000 of donations from the Club.

    Harry Fry added, “We really appreciate the support we have from the public throughout the year and none more so than during our Christmas collections. It may be cold and sometimes wet for the collectors but we still have fun and it is great to see the many children who come to see Santa. All the operating costs for our Club come from member fees and monies raised at social events. Every penny that goes into our buckets during our collections goes to a worthwhile charitable cause.”

    The Lions, together with Santa, can be found at:

    · Asda, Great Barr on 24th & 25th November

    · Morrisons, Aldridge on 1st & 2nd December

    · Aldridge Precinct on 8th December

    · Tesco, Brownhills on 15th & 16th December
