Charlie’s VIP visitors

Marathon man, Mike Crannage, who aims to cross the South American rainforest for charity, called in to DZG to meet a few of the colourful species he will encounter on his adventures.


Mayoral attendant Mike is planning a gruelling 150 mile coast to coast race across Costa Rica in February to raise funds for the Mayor of Dudley’s charities – in just 10 days.

Mike, aged 53, of Dudley, said: “I like to do what I can for charity and I have a very active sense of adventure.”

Good luck from DZG, Mike – look out for low flying macaws!

CAPTION: DZG’s female blue and yellow macaw, Charlie, says hello to Mike Crannage and Cllr Melvyn Mottram, Mayor of Dudley.
