Redditch to remember those who served their country at memorial tomorrow

Redditch Editorial 7th Oct, 2022   0

REDDITCH will be paying tribute to those who served in all wars at the Bomford Hill Peace Memorial tomorrow (October 8) with a service of remembrance.

This will be the fifth time the memorial service has taken place and will begin at 10.45am, with people asked to arrive 15 minutes before.

The service has been held on the Saturday closest to October 6, the date the last known soldier from the Parish of Beoley died while serving in World War One.

Others from the Parish also died in October while serving during the conflict.




The service will include prayers, bible readings, wreath layings, two minutes of silence, poems and the Redditch Pledge for Peace.

Church Hill Big Local co-chair Stephen Betteridge said: “It’s hugely important to remember the cost of war and the devastating impact it has on families and communities.


“This service is a chance for people to remember those who paid the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom, it’s always such a moving occasion.

“It’s always very touching to see so many people turn up to pay tribute to those who served, and it’s a personal service for anyone in Redditch to remember loved ones lost to conflict.”
