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.
