Hundreds turn out to pay their respects at the Catshill and Rubery Remembrance Sunday parades

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.

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.
