A BOSTIN' BLOKE FROM A BOSTIN' PART OF THE WORLD.

Tommy Mundon was a legend, a philanthropist, and a true gentleman. A son of his beloved Halesowen, more than any other local figure he has helped keep Black Country humour and culture alive.

Just one glance at that mischievous grin was enough to reduce everyone around him to hysterics - and that's even before the jokes flowed.

Let's hope that Dudley Council will now make his towering contribution to the story of the Black Country complete by granting him the posthumous Freedom of the Borough - something he so richly deserves.
