Local Shop Keeping Legend Has Road Named After Him!

Following the tragic death last year of popular Ashmore Park shop keeper Raj Kumar.

Wolverhampton Homes and Wolverhampton City Council have agreed to the naming of the service Road that loops around the back of the Ashmore Park Shopping Parade as – Raj Kumar Drive.

This is a permanent reminder to Raj, and I am sure the whole community will be delighted that this very special man is to be remembered in this way.

The road naming ceremony will be a tribute to him and will take place on Friday the 18th May 2018 at 12noon.

I do hope that the event will be fully supported by our community.

The Reverend Sam Leach has informed me that St Albans Church will be opened after the renaming ceremony, for refreshments for the family and, all in our community who wish to have a tea & coffee there.

I do hope that the event will be well supported by our community.
