Wednesfield North Councillors Active in the Community.

This weekend has seen your Wednesfield North Councillors, along with Wednesfield South Councillors and Emma Reynolds MP were  attending a number of community events on your behalf.

They have included the following – The Dutch War Graves Remembrance at Jeffcock Road cemetery, where Dutch soldiers paraded as a mark of respect to their comrades who fell during the second World War here in Wolverhampton.

A little known fact. The Dutch Royal Family kept their Crown Jewels in the Mayor’s Safe in Wolverhampton Town Hall during the second World War!

We have also attended a Remembrance Service on Saturday at the Hub at Ashmore Park, plus we also enjoyed visiting the Wednesfield Photographic Club Exhibition, and the Art Classes at The Hub at Ashmore Park also.

Then on Sunday the main Remembrance Service at St Thomas’s Church. By my estimate there was close on a full house in the Church, and a huge crowd had gathered in the Remembrance Gardens.

Adding the numbers who watched The Parade to the Church from the Royal British Legion Woodend Club,  close on a thousand people will have taken part or watched or played a part in the Villages Remembrance  service on Sunday.

I am so proud of our community! So proud of Wednesfield and its people!
