Catshill falls silent for the centenary of Armistice Day

Tristan Harris 11th Nov, 2018 Updated: 13th Nov, 2018

IN CATSHILL the commemorations for the end of the First World War began at the village’s Working Men’s Club where there was a service at 10am.

The parade then journeyed to the Catshill Memorial on the corner of Stourbridge Road and Meadow Road where the names on the memorial were read out.

The two-minute silence was punctuated by Paul Hatton from the Boys Brigade who has been playing the bugle at the village’s services since he was 13 years old.

The bugle he used was one played during The Great War.

After the silence, wreaths were laid by a variety of organisations, including the Lickey End branch of the Royal British Legion.

After the weekend started with rain, the sun came out in time and shone down on the Catshill commemorations.
