I also note that up until 4pm today (Saturday 30th June 2018) you can get your wheels washed at the Crown in Aldridge (yeah, that’s the Elms for us oldsters) in aid of Armed Forces Day – so what’s not to love?
I notice the Crown is engaging well with the local community at the moment which can’t be a bad thing – check out their Facebook page here for all they’ve got going on.
On the matter of Armed Forces Day/Weekend, loads of stuff on at the National Memorial Arboretum, Alrewas too today (if you’re quick) and tomorrow (Sunday 1st July 2018) – why not check it out?
The National Memorial Arboretum announced:
Thousands of people have descended on the Arboretum today for the site’s flagship event to celebrate Armed Forces Day Weekend. Soak up the sunshine and enjoy a host of FREE fun activities and entertainment.
Don’t miss the Lancaster* Flypast today (Sat), Spitfire* Flypast (Sun), Parachute drop* (Sun), Live music, Costumed Interpreters, Children’s craft, Food and Gift Fair, WW1 Assault Course, Climbing Wall, Zip Line, Inflatable Airbag, Archery, Forklift Basketball and much more!
