SOLIHULL will fall silent this Sunday to remember those who gave their lives for our freedom.
As well as paying tribute to fallen servicemen and women, this year also marks 100 years since the Battle of Passchendaele.
The Mayor of Solihull, Councillor Stuart Davis, was in Touchwood and Mell Square alongside Solihull Royal British Legion selling poppies to shoppers on Saturday (November 4).
He said: “It was great to get out on a busy Saturday for the Poppy Walkabout.
“I met many people in Touchwood who were happy to buy a poppy and show their support and respect to our service men and women who have dedicated their lives for the good of the nation.
“I encourage all Silhillians to wear their poppy with pride and help raise vital funds for the Royal British Legion.”
Last year Solihull RBL raised nearly £59,000 though the poppy appeal which helps provide financial, social and emotional support to the men and women who have served, and who are serving, in the British armed forces, together with their families.
