Those gathered tied blue and yellow ribbons onto a trellis as a symbol they were thinking of those caught up in the war and to show support for them.

Rev Lewis said: “There was a real sense of togetherness and solidarity with the people of Ukraine.”


He thanked everyone who supported, helped organise and attended the event which was held in conjunction with Bromsgrove District Council.
