MP opens new Blackheath library
26th July 2011
James Morris, MP for Halesowen and Rowley Regis, opened the new Blackheath library and the new offices for Black Country Housing Group last Friday.
The low carbon building was designed and built by a local contractor, GF Tomlinson, which was positive for the local economy. It will offer a wide variety of books and internet facilities, in addition to a new weekly work club being run by the Black Country Housing Group.
During the opening, James cut the ribbon to officially open the buildings with the Chief Executive of BCHG. He then officially joined Blackheath library, along with his son Solomon. Whilst there, James also took the time to speak with staff from both the library and BCHG.
James Morris commented: “It was a pleasure to open the new public library in Blackheath, which will be a fantastic addition to the local community. I look forward to using the library and am particularly impressed with their plans to hold a weekly job club”.
