Bournville Councillors have organised a public Bournville Ward Committee meeting to discuss, amongst other items, the news that Bournville has lost its 120 year old ‘dry’ tradition.
Wednesday 14th October at 7pm at the Dame Elizabeth Hall, at the back of Oak Tree Lane.
Many people in Bournville are still in shock over learning that Bournville no longer has its 120 year old tradition of being a dry village, with no pubs and no off licences as a result of the recent decision by Birmingham’s Licencing Committee to permit a newsagents on Mary Vale Road to acquire an alcohol licence and thus convert to an off licence.
