After a short service at Catshill Working Men’s Club the parade journeyed across to the memorial where the names of those from the village who lost their lives in conflict were read out.

The two-minute silence was held at 11am and then wreaths were laid at the memorial.

Daren Lacey, secretary of Catshill and Lickey End Royal British Legion and the areas’ Poppy Appeal organiser, said: “I have been here for three years and it has been getting bigger every year.

“The village always pulls together for Remembrance Sunday and always does us proud.

“We couldn’t ask for anymore from the community.”
