Preparing Poppy Road - Station Road Aldridge

Poppy Road is up and running!

I am told it is not finally ready but today saw a group of people coming together to ensure that the Poppy Road Project was nearly ready. There were air cadets, a lovely young Brownie and her Grandmother, local residents and of course Len, Sue and Karen plus partners. Thankfully the sun shone despite the bitter cold. Here are photographs of a work in progress and some completed work. Please click on the photograph to see it enlarged.

As I walked the length of Station Road at lunchtime there were tears. This is a beautiful and wonderful tribute and commemoration to those people of Aldridge who came before us and sacrificed so very much.

For a full explanation about the project please see my previous blog HERE

More to come later in the week.

These are all my own photographs. You are welcome to use them but please do acknowledge this blog. Thank you.
