About the Author

I have nearly always lived in Wednesfield, I moved away briefly but missed the sense of community and so swiftly moved back! I honestly believe Wednesfield has more to offer than the residents often give it credit for and wanted to do something to redress the balance of negativity around where we live. Working for a media company using the internet and social media as a marketing tool I had the skills and passion to help set up WV11.co.uk so did!

  1. They should stipulate the design is NOT allowed to have a lock or a key in it – that might make it more challenging.

  2. Michael says:

    I think the design SHOULD have a lock or key, to reflect the history of the town.
