The cat is officially out of the bag! We've been sitting on a FANTASTIC secret project for a few months now and it's time to tell you all about it!

The Dorothy Parkes Community Centre will be celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2020 and we're planning to celebrate all year long.

To honour two decades of DP community spirit, we'll be collecting stories from local residents to help tell our community story.

These stories will be presented through exhibitions, publications and more, and we're just so excited about it!

Whether you've lived in Smethwick for 6 months or 60 years (or anything in between) we want to hear from you!
