Welcome to The Bloxwich Telegraph

The Bloxwich Telegraph is the online community news, information and heritage magazine for Bloxwich, Blakenall Heath, Leamore and Birchills, England.

LEADER: I’ll be back!

A while back, I announced that The Bloxwich Telegraph was going into hibernation for family and work reasons which made it difficult for me to keep up with work on the Telegraph.

That is still going to be the case for a while, but thanks to the kind support of some wonderful Bloxwich folk, I am now planning a return to at least limited operation, in time for Bloxwich Carnival on 3 August, and the carnival will be fully covered, all being well, as has been traditional since 2006.

If time permits, there may also be a re-launch on Wordpress.org, in order to allow commercial development and advertising.

In the meantime, there will be occasional outbursts from The Bloxwich Telegraph, such as today's news about the Bloxwich Carnival Queen and her entourage.

More as matters develop.
