Communities unite for Remembrance Sunday

A number of poignant services and parades will be taking place across the borough this Remembrance Day on Sunday 10 November. The services have added significance this year, as 2019 marks the 100th anniversary of the 1919 Peace Treaty, the 80th anniversary of the start of the Second World War and 75 years since the D-Day landings. In Walsall, each Remembrance Day, the community comes together to honour these men and women. The boroughs annual Observance of Remembrance will be held at the Cenotaph in the town centre to pay tribute to the men and women of our Armed Forces past, present and future.
