Walsall Warriors do Battle by Glyn Marston

Saturday, 28th March – Junior dodgeball tournament in Leicester.

The kids had been attending dodgeball sessions in Willenhall for fun and fitness but the last six months most of them had been training for the junior dodgeball tournament and on the day their training and hard work paid off. The under 16s had six matches (30 games) before reaching the knock out stages, the under 13s had 8 matches (24 games) before reaching their knock outs. Both teams performed so well that they didn’t lose a game all day, both teams drew on game and won the other games (only two points off gaining the maximum points that could be earned). It was an emotional day as I watched each match and paced the touchline like a football manager, shouting instructions etc. The parents who turned up to support the kids were in awe of the way the players of both teams played with pride and sportsmanship. A day I will never forget.

Haven’t we seen you somewhere before? Doppelgangers roll into Willenhall

What on earth were Kate and Wills, funnyman Keith Lemon and Hollywood heartthrob George Clooney all doing in Willenhall?

That was the question on everyone’s lips when a gaggle of famous faces descended on the town.

They were in fact all lookalikes and there to star in a short film being shot by budding film maker Daniel Crooks from Willenhall.

Other celebs turning heads in the town were Baywatch babe Pamela Anderson, Jack Sparrow from Pirates of the Caribbean and Frank Gallagher from TV show Shameless. And it certainly confused and intrigued the locals who came over to have a closer look and request selfies with the clones.

Red Nose Day The Movie will be 20 minutes long and Mr Crooks will be posting it onto YouTube tomorrow and he is hoping it may make it onto TV.

Love it!! #WillenhallAyWe

Flying at last! Willenhall raises its own flag by Express and Star

Ex-serviceman Arthur Utley, who took part in the Normandy landings, was given the honour of running the standard up the flagpole above Willenhall library which will be its permanent base.

Visitors from Willenhall’s twin town of Drancy in France were among special guests at the launch.

The red and blue flag, featuring padlocks and keys reflecting the town’s leading part in the lock manufacturing industry, was chosen from 68 entries in a competition organised by community website willenhallaywe.co.uk.

A panel of judges picked the best six and left it to the public to choose their favourite. The flag, designed by Adam Leonard, has since been officially registered with the Flag Institute.

A plaque on the front of the building recording the achievement was unveiled by Councillor Peter Smith, Mayor of Walsall. A flag was also presented to the French visitors.
