HALESOWEN South councillors are now holding advice surgeries at Halesowen Cricket Club.

From this weekend the surgeries will be at the Dog Kennel Lane club on the first Saturday of the month between 10.30am and noon.

Cllr Nick Gregory said: "The surgery is an ideal opportunity for members of the public to drop in and have a chat with your local councillors. "It is always nicer to have a face to face with someone, rather than email."

He added: "The cricket club provides ample free parking and we hope, that because of its location we shall see more residents able to pop in and share any issues they have with us.

"The cricket club have been extremely generous in letting us use their facilities and we are very grateful for their community support."
