15 September: Homes Fit for Heroes? Bromsgrove and the Post-war Housing Crisis. Speaker: Annie Deeley.

Local historian and researcher Annie Deeley, who runs the popular Facebook page Bromsgrove Past & Present, tells the story behind Prime Minister David Lloyd George’s famous slogan and Bromsgrove’s efforts to overcome the national housing shortages after both world wars. The talk will be illustrated with examples of slum clearance in Bromsgrove and, in 1946, the arrival of the first prefabs in Sidemoor and the development of council housing in Catshill, Charford and Aston Fields.
