Christmas gifts

Walsall's very own countdown to Christmas gets underway tomorrow with a special online Advent calendar.

Each day from Saturday 1 December until Christmas Eve there will be a special "window" to click on with information about Christmas events, festive advice and tips to make the holiday season a real success.

The calendar can be found at so don't forget to start clicking your way down to the big day.

Walsall Partnership is a multi-agency force including Walsall Council, police, fire service and other key agencies and organisations.

Councillor Ian Shires, cabinet member for community and voluntary sector with Walsall Council Coalition, said: "We can't promise chocolates, but I hope the online Advent calendar proves a hit with local residents.

"It is packed with information about events going on around the borough as well as very useful and timely advice to keep yourself, your family and property safe over the festive period."
