Hall Green and Shirley – 06/01/12 and 07/01/12

Celia was on the Stratford Road today walking Ziggy, one of her three show dogs. She has some reservations when it comes to how the suburbs have changed in social status over the years but still loves living in Hall Green. [1256]

Margaret has been in Birmingham since 2007 but hails from the island of Bute, Scotland. Still with a Scottish accent, I asked whether she was ever planning to return there but Margaret avidly replied no, having so many fabric shops and haberdasheries close-by makes life in Hall Green ideal for any keen seamstress.

Harj works as a medical supplier’s representative and was visiting a business in Hall Green to promote their services. Whilst she lives in London, Harj spends a lot of time working in the Midlands and around the Manchester areas. [1522]

Gary has always lived near the Stratford Road and owns Tower Blinds based on School Road. Business was said to be more challenging than usual but things were still going well enough. [-185]
