‘A VERY impressive turn-out’ – that was the verdict on this year’s Rubery Remembrance Sunday parade and service.

The day began with a Service of Remembrance, led by Rev Claire Turner from St Chad’s Church, outside the Rubery Memorial Club which was attended by around 300 people.

Wreaths were laid and the names of all those in Rubery who had made the ultimate sacrifice were also read out as part of proceedings.

That was followed by a parade down New Road and 15 minutes of prayers, hymns and music inside St Chad’s Church.




One participant Simon said: “This is the first time I have been to the Remembrance Sunday service and parade in this area.

“The people of Rubery are so supportive to veterans and it was great to see the young cadets here as they are our future.


“The reading out of the names of the fallen was a very moving moment.”

Refreshments were then served at Rubery Memorial Club.
