Sandwell is 50: share your stories

Case studies Inner

Share your stories of Sandwell to celebrate the 50th anniversary of our borough.

In 1974 our six towns of Sandwell – Oldbury, Rowley Regis, Smethwick, Tipton, Wednesbury and West Bromwich – were brought together under our current boundaries. As you know, a lot has happened in the half century since.

To celebrate the occasion, Sandwell Council is appealing for residents to share their memories of Sandwell. The Sandwell Business Growth team is encouraging businesses and organisations to do the same. We’d love to hear your stories of workplace successes, events and characters from the last 50 years.

Share your Sandwell stories with the world

We also welcome photos and videos. It’s great to see how Sandwell has, or hasn’t, changed over the years. Sandwell Council will feature some of the most notable contributions on its social media channels, on its website and in a special article in the Sandwell Herald. And we may well share your business stories here on the Sandwell Business Growth website.

If you have something special you’d like to share, get in touch. Let’s showcase half a century of significant and surprising Sandwell stories.
