2014 Remembrance services – can you help with details please?


2012 Remembrance in Bloxwich, beautifully captured by Stuart Williams at The Bloxwich Telegraph.

This is just a quick request for help – last year, we crowdsourced from readers a list of local Remembrance parades and events taking place throughout the area, that was popular and useful to many of the readership.

I’d like to match last year’s list if I can.

If you can supply details for Brownhills, Walsall Wood or other local parades, please comment here. It’s strange that they’re so hard to get information for.

If you’d rather, feel free to mail me: BrownhillsBob at Googlemail dot com. Cheers.
