Rubbing its eyes and doing some stretches is WME Wolverhampton, our faithful servant having enjoyed a fruitful March. Calls at Compton have yielded a Swan dartboard and a canal lock sign while over in Penn we have Chamberlains Lane shrouded in estate agent paraphernalia. Pub pickings are evident from the Claregate and the Cleveland Arms, plus there are artistic arrivals courtesy of Bilston Craft Gallery (cue some tennis racquet characters from a Mad Dogs and Englishmen exhibition) - if they don't wake you up nothing will...
Also up and about in sprightly fashion is WME Telford, proud recipient of some more Blists Hill bits and pieces including the chandlery, the foundry and Madeley Wood Brickworks. WME Staffordshire has likewise cast aside the duvet to summon forth pictures of Bratch Common Road (from the edges of Wombourne), Codsall station footbridge and a curious tree trunk figure spotted on the Staffs & Worcs Canal near Castlecroft.
Trying in vain to ignore the alarm clock are WME Shropshire and WME Birmingham. Salop grudgingly accepts some Broseley bonuses (Pound Lane for example) and a Shrewsbury snippet showcasing the Crown at Coleham, whereas Brum stirs itself with a prod from the Boldmere Tap, a Joules pub not far from Sutton Coldfield.
Preferring to stay in bed are our motley bunch of lazy so-and-sos, headed by the erstwhile WME Worcestershire (dreaming sweetly of the George Hotel in Bewdley) along with WME Solihull (a Kingshurst contribution concentrating on the Punchbowl's dartboard). Finally, still fast asleep and snoring their heads off are WME Walsall (a Bridgeman Street bus stop) and WME Dudley (the former Broadstone pub near Colley Gate). That's enough springtime slumbers for the time being so I'll be back soon with some April additions - yawn!!
