As many of you may have noticed in the B44 area, the Great Barr Observer, the free weely local paper may not have been delivered to your house in 2011. After enquiring The B44 have had it confirmed that the Great Barr Observer is no longer being delivered to all areas of the region. The paper is still being published and will remain free, with the ownership of the paper looking into potential places for free pick up. However none of these plans have yet been finallised. The B44 will inform readers of these locations when told.
It is a great shame that a local source of news is no longer accessable to all.
