Dudley MP Ian Austin and local Councillors Shaukat Ali, Shaneila Mughal and Steve Waltho are encouraging local residents in St Thomas to attend a Memorial Service on Remembrance Sunday at Grazebrook Park.
The service will occur at 9:15am on Sunday 12th November at Grazebrook Park, Grazebrook Road, Dudley, DY2 8SS.
The service will be led by Reverend Jem Hawkins and attended by local Air Cadets and veterans.
For the last ten years Austin and local Councillors Shaukat Ali, Shaneila Mughal and Steve Waltho have organised this annual Remembrance Day service at Grazebrook Park working with local residents from the Friends of Buffrey Park.
Ian Austin said:
“Local people have shown great respect for the Grazebrook Memorial and we have seen the number of people attending year on year.
“We work with the Friends of Buffery Park and local residents so we can pay our respects to those who died fighting for the British values of democracy, equality, freedom, fairness, and tolerance.”
Cllr Shaukat Ali said:
“There is no greater example of the community coming together than this dignified act of remembrance in honour of all British service men and women, especially those who have sacrificed their lives for our country.
“I hope that local residents take this opportunity to come along to this local service”
