A SPECIAL event inspired by the Royal British Legion will take place at Bromsgrove’s Sanders Park from midday tomorrow (Sunday).

The Poppy Picnic in the Park will be held to mark the centenary of the end of the First World War.

It will feature a performance by the Band of the Mercian Regiment, a dog show, a funfair, military vehicles, the emergency services with their vehicles and much more.

Vintage Classic will also be performing songs from around the time of the Second World War.

Patrick Smith, the chairman of the Bromsgrove Royal British Legion, said: “The last Poppy Picnic in the Park was held to mark the RBL’s 90th anniversary.

“It was a great success and we are hoping this will be equally supported by the good people of Bromsgrove and the surrounding areas.”
