This Blog is about the B44 post code area of North Birmingham, covering Great Barr, Kingstanding and Oscott. Shown in the map below:

With the long term decline of the traditional print paper both nationally and locally, there has been a rise in hyper local blogs to try and cover the gap left in reporting local news and stories. The internet is now potentially providing this platform.

The B44 Blog will hopefully provide a long term sustainable service for the residents of Great Barr, Kingstanding and Oscott, informing them of local events, news and views not only from the Editor but from contributors too, giving everyone a voice to be heard.

On the right hand side of this blog you will find many links to local information and services for the area. Please have a look.

You can also follow ‘The B44’ Blog on it’s Twitter page or become a fan of us on Facebook.
