Brilliant to visit Sledmere School today to see their Faith City event.

The school had arranged speakers from each of the world’s main religions to speak to the pupils about their faith.

Over the last few days the school has had people talking about Christianity, Islam, Judaism, Sikhism and Hinduism and it was fascinating to see the children learn about the common beliefs and practices of different religions.

It was great to see the pupils learning about other faiths and learning that we all have so much more in common than that which divides us.

Well done to everyone at Sledmere and all the people who came in to talk about their religion.

Great work at Sledmere Primary School!

The Malt Shovel in Tower Street is opening again on Friday after a 12-month upgrade.

The pub will offer a wide selection of beers, lagers, ciders and pub snacks.

Ian Austin said:

“I was delighted to go and meet the team at the Malt Shovel and see the work that’s been done to refurbish the place over the last 12 months.

“The investment is a brilliant boost for Dudley and will provide 12 jobs for the local area. 

“I've enjoyed having a drink in the Malt Shovel over the years and I was really pleased to see it looking so good. It looks like it will be a great addition to the town centre".

Staff at Lower Gornal Youth Centre, The Source Youth Centre in Wordsley and Stourbridge Youth Centre have all been told they are at risk of redundancy. 

Youth workers who currently run the sessions are now at risk of losing their jobs. Many have worked for years with disabled youngsters, running sessions to help disabled young people socialise and learn new skills. 

Ian Austin said: 

“I am very concerned about the effect these changes could have on disabled young people.. 

“The youth workers do a great job, they provide a valuable service to many youngsters and it’s unacceptable that Dudley Council are putting this at risk. 

“I’ll be working with parents, young people and campaigners to do all I can to get the council to think again.

"You can sing the petition against this here"
