Contractors Volunteer To Help At Remembrance Parades This Weekend

Staff from utility companies working in Dudley have volunteered to help support Remembrance Sunday parades across the borough.

Dudley Council has, for the first time, approached the utility companies it works with on a day-to-day basis to support the annual parades.

More than 30 kind-hearted volunteers from BT, National Grid, Balfour Beatty, Western Power, Severn Trent Water, South Staffordshire Water and Onsite will be on hand to provide steward support with Council Staff at 13 parades across the borough, including the borough’s main parade in Dudley town centre.

Their support means all of the parades, which give local people the opportunity to pay their respects to those that have lost their lives in conflict, can go ahead as planned Councillor Hilary Bills, cabinet member for environmental services, said:

“At a time when our finances are under increasing strain, we are extremely grateful to the utility companies for supporting Dudley’s Remembrance Day parades. It means that smaller community parades can also go ahead as planned. 

“Their support demonstrates their commitment to the borough, our communities and the excellent working relationship they have with the council. Thank you to all those volunteering their time this Sunday.”
