Aldridge Newsletter for October 2006
Oh dear...I have been a little distracted with a number of other things including the "Aldridge Christmas tree appeal" and have let the newsletter slip, so my apologies are offered to you !
I will just have to work harder to catch up, and if i may, i would ask you to read more about the Christmas tree appeal here with additional information about events in Aldridge for Christmas.( updated as more info arrives )We are making good progress with the tree Appeal and need to raise donations to meet the target by the 20th of November, so any help you can offer is much valued !
Onwards with the newsletter....much of what i provide here is from my own research, and also includes articles from the local press, internet sources and local people.Where possible i provide the headline and a link direct to the source of information, rather than my own words.
my first story is a good example....Did you know your garden is classed as "Brownfield land", and may be ripe for building ?"brownfield garden story here

virus warnings sent by email are often well intentioned and often originate from a trustworthy source, like your friends, but a number of these can be hoax messages, but it is very hard to know the difference and very easy to get caught out, i should know, I am sorry to admit that i passed onto my readers, a message from a very reliable source, and based on the people who replied, to tell me that it was a hoax, i know that on only 1% of my readers are aware of this problem, so accept my apologies and read The Mcafee hoax information page ( note: there are other sources of this information on the web )
