This post is pinned to the top until Sunday – new material will appear below.
Following my request for information to make a list of local Remembrance events, I can again share with readers a list of Remembrance services taking place locally this Remembrance Sunday, 10th November 2019 – this list will be updated with more info as I get it.
I’m still after details of events not mentioned. Comment here or mail me on BrownhillsBob at Googlemail dot com if you have information to share. All welcome!
This post will remain pinned to the top of the blog until Sunday, so the information is to hand. Just click the ‘more’ link in grey below if necessary for the full details.
Please note: this is a live list – if you have any corrections, clarifications or additions, please do comment or mail me: BrownhillsBob at Googlemail dot com. I’d like to get the list as accurate and comprehensive as possible.
These functions are organised by a diverse range of organisations, nearly all outside the auspices of the local authority, so getting comprehensive information is no small task.
This may not be complete, and details are supplied in good faith. Neither I, or the named readers will be held responsible for inaccuracies in the details provided. We are all human, and this is always quite a tough task.
All events are assumed Sunday Morning 10th November 2019, unless otherwise stated – Walsall Wood parade (Sunday afternoon as always).
Your understanding is appreciated.
Memorial Hall – A parade will start to assemble at 10:00am and depart at 10:30am.
