Brierley Hill to commemorate Remembrance Sunday this weekend

Brierely Hill high street will be filled with people this weekend as the town commemorates Remembrance Sunday this weekend

Those wishing to take part in the parade are asked to assemble at the Moor Centre at 10:15am, ready to move away at 10:30am to march to the war memorial on Church Hill.

The church bells will be rung half muffled during the march and the salute will be taken on the steps of St Michael’s Church by representatives of the police, fire and ambulance services together with the elected members of the council.

The silence will take place at 11:00am followed by the laying of wreaths and a short service. This will be followed immediately by a service in St Michaels for those who wish to attend. Tim Sunter, Chair of Brierley Hill Community Forum, said:

"I would like to thank all of those involved in making this annual event a success. In particular the scouts, guides and all the volunteers who have created a new poppy cascade to flow from the war memorial. It looks spectacular.

"It is also wonderful that all the students of Brierley Hill Primary School will be walking up to the memorial for 11am on Friday 11th - our heritage is in safe hands."
