Bostin Fittle in Tipton

Tipton Town Libraries Local History Group have been running for the past few years and have been collecting local material and memories, hosting events and promoting the heritage of Tipton to local school children through a variety of themed lessons
Every September the group and members of Tipton Library hold a special local history day and in the past subjects such as The Bean and Tipton's Sporting Heritage have been featured.
This September the day will focus on Black Country Food and in particular Palethorpes and other local food producers in the area. The group are looking for traditional family recipes and are hoping to hold a 'bread pudding' competiton to accompany the event on Saturday 24th September
The campaign will be launched at the library at a special coffee morning on Thursday 21st April when members of MACE (media archive for Central England) will be showing a selection of film clips on the theme of Black Country Food and encouraging people to bring in their own clips and photographs to add to their archive

Admission to the coffee morning is free by advance ticket and tickets can be reserved at the library on 0121 557 1796. The local history group meets on the first Thursday of the month at Tipton Library at 10.30am
