Country Market in Tidbury Green Village Hall – Every Saturday Morning

This fabulous Country Market has just moved from the scout hut in Wythall Park to Tidbury Green Village Hall, Dickens Heath Road, Solihull, West Midlands B90 1QW.
They are there every Saturday morning.
Country Markets is a non-profit organisation.  It used to be part of the Women’s Institute until it was split off under a reorganisation about 20 years ago.
 Although the participants in the market receive money for the sale of their produce no one makes a living out of it.  It is more of a “paying hobby”.  People participate because it is an enjoyable social event.  It is a similar story for the customers.  The Country Market is a meeting place for groups of friends where they can have a nice cup of coffee and a home-made cake together.
Anything which is cooked, grown or otherwise created at home can be sold at Country Markets.  Nothing is bought in for resale.  In this way they provide an outlet for the cottage industries of yesteryear.
As well as being a great place to visit, shop and have a cuppa and a chat, go, they are always in need more producers.

Guidance for Halloween –

Please find below guidance, which has been provided by Solihull MBC, on how to have a safe Halloween this year for cascading through your networks.

Enjoy Halloween safely this year

Halloween is a time when people often gather together and this poses a risk for COVID-19 transmission.  

The current lockdown restrictions in Solihull prevent gatherings of more than 6 taking place in private gardens outside, with no one is permitted to come inside your home unless they have a valid exemption.

Below are ideas and guidance to help you plan a safe Halloween this year:   

Make sure you help to reduce the spread of the virus by avoiding:

Knocking on doors – this increases transmission potential and would expose our many as residents who are vulnerable and should be protected, as well as those who are isolating.

Traditional trick or treating – where treats are handed to children who go door to door or children take sweets from a shared bucket.


Organising or attending crowded costume parties held indoors, outdoors or at your own home.

Instead of the traditional door to door trick or treating where the virus can be spread by touch, why not try:

·         Carve or decorate pumpkins and display in your household

·         Organise a Halloween treasure hunt at home

·         Host a virtual party with themed games and music

·         Watch a scary movie with the familyincluding spooky treats

·         Have a virtual Halloween costume contest

By following this guidance you can enjoy a safe and fun Halloween, whilst also protecting your neighbours, friends and family!
