We know how challenging this past year has been and we want to give people in Bearwood and Smethwick a space to grieve and remember the people we have lost. We are inviting you, your family and people of all ages to make a personal, handheld flag in remembrance of someone who has died, and to place your flags alongside the In Memoriam installation in our High Street Garden for a temporary display.

You will be able to book up to half an hour (30 mins) on 15th May, 2021. To have some time to remember and reflect with your family whilst you place your flags in the garden (Covid-19 restrictions apply). Alternatively you can make your flags and display them in your windows or you can send some photos in for us to display online.


Join us at our Online Coffee Morning on 11th May 10am-11am, where Debbie from BrumYODO will explain more about the project! If you would like to join us email us here.
