Stairlifts Wolverhampton – Stairlifts West Midlands
Here we are in Wolverhampton in the West Midlands so hello Wulfrunians or Yam Yams if you prefer! These nicknames sometimes seem quite bizarre. The term Wulfrunians comes from the history of the town; Wolverhampton is named after one Lady Wulfrun who is said to have founded a ‘landed estate’ at the place now known as Wolverhampton. This was in the year 985; prior to this she had founded a convent at Tamworth. You’ll still find references around the town to Wulfrun i.e. The Wulfrun Centre or Wulfrun Hall.
Wolverhampton has a nickname of its own and is often called Wolves or even Wolvo.

Now its economy is engineering based including the aerospace industry and the service sector. How times change!

Sunbeam also built several Grand Prix winners too – it was the only British make to win a Grand Prix in the first half of the 20th century.
Sunbeam Talbots were built for the road up until the beginning of the 1980’s.
