Parish Council


On 30th April 2014 a crowd of Birlingham residents gathered on the village green to witness the planting of poppy seeds around
the war memorial. The event was one of many taking part around the country, at the request of the Archbishops of Canterbury and York,
as part of the commemoration of the start of the First World War 100 years ago.
