*Enormous THANK YOU!*

The Mayor, Town Clerk and Council Members would like to give an enormous thank you to all the members of Blackrod Community and others, who turned out to support the recent 2018 Remembrance Day Service. The hundreds of people who turned up at the Cenotaph on a drizzly grey morning exceeded all expectations and showed the true grit of Blackrod folks who were determined that this years’ Service of Remembrance including the commemoration of the end of World War One would be a fitting tribute – even if a band hadn’t been made available! Volunteer Pipers , Drum and Trumpet Players, Collective Blackrod School Choirs and music played through a tannoy system to the marching crowds all played their part in making the Remembrance Service a success as well as those who assisted in the background. Well Done everyone you made the Village of Blackrod extremely proud.
