Market all set to sparkle and shine
People can get unique Christmas gifts this weekend with the Small Business Saturday market in Dudley town centre.
Taking place on Saturday 6 December at Stone Street Square, the stalls will be occupied by Dudley borough residents who make and sell items from their home.
The festive market will run from 10am to 4pm next to the town’s Christmas tree. Family entertainment and music will be provided throughout the day.
The market is the final event of Dudley’s wider Small Business Week, which also included free business clinics.
Farage comments show Russells Hall not safe with UKIP!
Dudley MP Ian Austin has hit out at UKIP after the party’s leader Nigel Farage was caught on camera calling for the NHS to be run privately.
A newly-released recording of Mr Farage shows him saying “I think we are going to have to move to an insurance-based system of healthcare”. He added that he would be more “comfortable” if healthcare was opened up to the “marketplace”.
He told his audience that he was “being completely honest” about it
Centenary event pays respect to heroes
Thousands came to Dudley today to pay their respects to armed forces heroes at the annual Remembrance Sunday parade and service.
The Mayor of Dudley, Councillor Margaret Aston, formed part of the traditional Dudley Council event, which also marked 100 years since the start of World War One.
Members of the community, civic dignitaries, students from Dudley College and cadets gathered in Coronation Gardens from 10am this morning.
The event included a service at the cenotaph in Ednam Road and a parade featuring armed forces veterans. Music was provided by the Salvation Army band and Dudley Performing Arts students.
Black Country rapist in vile attacks on young girl is jailed
A paedophile has been jailed for 10 years for the rape of a young girl.
Phillip Hollis, of Round Hill, Sedgley, was jailed at Wolverhampton Crown Court after admitting to four charges of rape and a fifth charge of exposure.
The sex offences were committed on a girl under 13 years of age. The court heard how Hollis, aged 47, carried out a number of the attacks after smoking cannabis. The assaults came to light after the child’s school was alerted by comments that were made by the girl.
