Thousands Brave Cold For Remembrance Services Across The Black Country

Over three thousand people came to Dudley today, and thousands more visited other towns across the region, to pay their respects to armed forces heroes at the annual Remembrance Sunday parades and services.

The Mayor of Dudley, Councillor Mohammed Hanif, formed part of the traditional Dudley Council-led event.

Members of the community, civic dignitaries, students from Dudley College and cadets gathered in Coronation Gardens from 10am this morning.

The event included a parade through the town with armed forces veterans and a service at the cenotaph in Ednam Road. The Salvation Army band and Dudley Performing Arts students performed throughout the morning. Councillor Mohammed Hanif, Mayor of Dudley, said:

“It was fabulous to see so many people out today in honour of our army, navy and air force veterans and the men and women currently in service at home and abroad.

“It is a privilege for me to lead our community in this tribute to mark the contribution and sacrifice made by our armed forces heroes.”

On Friday 11 November veterans joined council staff, councillors and members of the public at the Clock Tower in Priory Street for the annual Armistice Day service to mark the end of the First World War.
