  • Why Wythall.Info?
  • Some places are well served when it comes to online information and some are not - Wythall is one such place, rather than accept that fact the easiest solution was to launch Wythall.Info - written and run from the heart of Wythall for the residents and local businesses.
  • Whilst there are other sites in the area non concentrate on local issues in and around Wythall and whilst I accept there are many people who work in Solihull, Birmingham or Redditch the sites covering those areas do not cover Wythall. So if you would like to add editorial, comment on local issues or advertise please do get in touch.
  • The website is intended to be simple to navigate but capable of being expanded - so if there is a topic which is not covered and you feel should be then please put forward your views.
  • Broken links - if you find any please do let us know.
  • A website is never finished only published and so it is on the launch of this new venture there will be pages without content or much content - we will add more content and hopefully those who are interested will also add to the content.
  • Wythall.Info is brought to you by Charles Willcock aka I first became acquainted with the area back in the early 1980's and moved to Shawhurst Lane in 1992. Whilst I have no objection to the gentle expansion in housing and traffic I hope that the gentle growth of Wythall will not be at the expense of the green belt which makes Wythall the pleasant place it is.
