The Dudley borough hit the headlines this week as Theresa May chose the Netherton Conservative Club as the venue for an electioneering speech.
This must have felt like a safer place to meet Dudley voters after the Prime Minister had been refused permission to walk on the lawn of a resident in Sedgeley, earlier in the day.
The PM declined to make any specific pledges on either taxes or pensions in advance of the Conservative manifesto.
Good to see the media spotlight turned on our neighbourhood.
As soon as we hear more about Tory financial plans we let you know and try to provide some comment.
