This is just a quick request for help – in past years, we have 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.
There are always huge range of local services taking place, at towns and villages throughout the area.
If you contribute details I’ll wrap them all up into a big post during the week before Remembrance Sunday.
If you can supply details for any local event in Walsall or South Staffordshire, please comment here or mail me. I know people tend to travel to their home Remembrance event, and we have a wide audience, so stuff in the wider area is very much welcome.
Any help is welcome.
I’d also like readers to take photos of their local events if they can and I’ll feature them here; particularly after photos of Brownhills, Walsall Wood and Norton if possible.
If you’d rather, feel free to mail me: BrownhillsBob at Googlemail dot com. Cheers.
