Wednesfield Remembrance week will be busy!

This coming week is a week of importance both for our Community and indeed the City and the Nation.
Rededication of Bench 8th of November We will be re-dedicating a bench to Ashmore Parks own Adrian Anslow, which has been refurbished, by Bromford Housing Association, inside Anslow Gardens, which carries Adrian’s name. The Reverend Tom Fish of St Albans Church will lead this service.
Adrian was a resident of Ashmore Park, was schooled locally and was sadly lost to his loving family and friends, during his service to our Country and the Royal Navy just 20 years of age. Adrian went missing at sea during the Falklands conflict with Argentina. Adrian was in the Fleet Air Arm unit in the 45 R Squadron.
We are hoping that Adrian’s family and friends will attend the memorial. More news around this memorial will be published in the next few days.
