I have lived in Blakedown since 1999, and come originally from Pensnett,
the true heart of the Black Country.
I run the web site on a voluntary basis after being introduced to the original
site owner, Jill Hall (no relation), by Sue Savage. After agreeing to run
the site, I then managed to persuade the Parish Council to own the site
for the villages of Churchill and Blakedown, so that when I eventually
move on, the site will continue under a new Administrator.
I am also the Cub Scout Leader (Akela) for the Blakedown Scout Group. When
I get time (ha!), my other hobbies include archery, astronomy and classical
I work for a large American, International
computing firm that supply Business Machines
and computer solutions to companies and organisations
of all sizes and types.
I welcome all feedback regarding this web
site, good and bad, and encourage everyone
to send me your comments. I hope you enjoy
browsing this site as much as I enjoy building
it. I also hope that you find it useful on
occasion for local news and information.
