Pelsall Village Centre gets off to flying start

More than 850 people went through the doors when Pelsall Village Centre opened for its first day.

Sue Grainger, head of Libraries, Heritage and Arts, said a total of 867 people visited the new facility, which houses the library, children’s centre and GP surgery, on Tuesday.

On average, Aldridge Library receives around 290 visits daily; Bloxwich 400; Brownhills 350; and the Central Library 900.

“It is bound to quieten down when the novelty value wears off, but our experience from Bloxwich and Brownhills indicate that we can hope for a doubling of the visitor numbers in the first year,” she says.

Coun Garry Perry said he was thrilled at the good start.

“It proves the new facility will be a popular asset for the whole community,” he said.
