SVI Open Meeting

Fri, July 12, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Join us for our summer Open Meeting. This month features Black Country performer Billy Spake Mon along with a talk on bin collections and recycling by Rebecca Davies of Serco.

Billy Spake Mon will entertain us with stories and songs from his life in the Black Country ‘A Bir on This an’ A Bir on That’. This forms part of our contribution to the Black Country Festival 2019 especially for our members and friends.

The second part of the meeting will be your chance to find out about local bin collections and recycling. We welcome Rebecca Davies of Serco who will be ‘talking rubbish’.

There will be refreshments and a raffle. Travel costs will be met if you have a receipt for your journey and you live in Sandwell.

The afternoon is a good chance to catch up with old friends, meet new ones and have a bostin time!
