POPPY ROAD -  November 2018


For the centenary of  WW1   ALHS partnered with the  Aldridge Great War Project  and over the four years,  a team of ALHS  members assisted in the research of the  histories of the men from Aldridge who went to war.  ALHS  suggested that some of those histories could form the basis of a poppy trail  around the village. That idea culminated in the hugely successful  POPPY ROAD event in November 2018 when Station  Road Aldridge became a sea of poppies for two weeks.


Station Road was chosen because of the significant number of men who went to war from that single road in the village , but the event was a tribute to honour all the local people who endured the Great War of 1914 -18.  Silhouettes represented those from Station Road who did not return.
