Stourbridge & Halesowen Branch

Karl Jones’s Stumbleground Map of Stourbridge Pubs now available as a T-Shirt (£12 subject to sufficient orders)
Many of you will be aware that charity champion Karl Jones has been raising funds for Mary Stevens Hospice by reproducing a poster showing Stourbridge Pubs based on the iconic London Underground map. (See Stourbridge News 24th July or google Karl Jones Stumbleground Map of Stourbridge pubs). Karl is now considering producing the image on a “Fruit of the Loom” T-Shirt but wants to gauge the level of interest. If you wish to order a T-shirt, please e-mail Chris Heardman (cheardman@blueyonder.co.uk) with your name, address and T-shirt size. Estimated cost is £12 with all proceeds going to Mary Stevens Hospice.
