CROWDS turned out in their droves to the Remembrance Sunday parades in Catshill and Rubery after last year’s Covid-19 restrictions prevented big events.
In Catshill the parade, featuring numerous standards, journeyed to the War Memorial at the junction of Meadow Road and Stourbridge Road.
A short ceremony was held, including a two-minute silence and wreaths were laid at the memorial by a number of organisations, including the Royal British Legion, West Merica Police and the scouts.
Refreshments were held at Catshill Club afterwards.
In Rubery, the service was led by Rev Claire Turner from St Chad’s Church outside the village’s Memorial Club.
Wreaths were laid at the foot of the memorial and a parade then followed – down New Road.
There were 15 minutes of prayers, hymns and music inside St Chad’s Church and refreshments in the Rubery Memorial Club afterwards.
