Congratulations to MFAA treasurer Harry Bloomer JP FRSA, chosen as one of the Sandwell Award winners.

Harry was honoured to be invited to accept a 50forWM50 Award at the celebration of 50 years of volunteering in the County of West Midlands. The event held yesterday was hosted by the Lord Lieutenant of the West Midlands, Sir John Crabtree CVO OBE.

Harry from The Art Yard was chosen as one of the volunteers for Sandwell at the afternoon tea celebrations which took place at The Great Hall of Birmingham University.

The Awards were sponsored by United by 2022 following the legacy left from the last Commonwealth Games.


Midland Film and Art


Midland Film and Art is a membership club where people can enjoy screenings of films or view artwork and crafts that would otherwise not be shown in mainstream cinemas or exhibitions, or be available locally. These shows usually have an educational aim, introducing new audiences to different audiovisual works through screening and display, encouraging participation in arts and crafts. A common feature that may characterize a Midland Film and Art meeting is that they either begin with an introduction to the audience and/or end with the promotion of a discussion about the film/art, where assistants, organizers and sometimes the filmmakers/artists themselves, exchange their views.
