Paying tribute

We’re set to help pay tribute to the heroes of war with a cascade of poppies down Dudley Castle.

The poignant memorial is being led by local community group Dudley Remembers, who are inviting people to sponsor an all-weather poppy in support of the 100th anniversary of the Royal British Legion.

We’ll be installing a cargo net filled with poppies on November 4, which will flow down the side of the 11th century castle for the majority of the month and will hopefully be seen for miles around.

Poppies can be sponsored for a minimum £3 donation to RBL’s Poppy Appeal, at Black Country Tee Shirts in Castle Street, Dudley or at the Black Country Hub at Merry Hill.
