In 2003 after the failure to become European City of Culture, Birmingham launched another attempt to persuade the world outside that it is a far better place than people think. Council and business leaders wanted to see the city branded as a place of diversity, dynamism, and determination. Its new trademark is the letter B, followed by the slogan, ‘Many worlds, one great city’.

The Hockley Flyer magazine if entirely funded by the advertising, but we could always do with a little bit more funding. The advertising not only pays for the design/printing, but also postage, delivery, all the associated paperwork/accounts, and research for the Heritage section. Our subscribers pay only a bit more then the postage/mailing costs, and the magazines are free - no cover price.
