As part of this year’s celebration – he has invited businesses across the town to dress their shop windows for Remembrance.

Prizes have been offered up for the winning entrants to donate to a charity of their choice thanks to sponsorship by Pre Metro Operations Ltd, which David works for as a driver for the Stourbridge Shuttle.

There’s £125 for the winner, £75 for the second place entrant and £50 for the third.

David, a lifelong resident of Stourbridge, said: “Last year I organised the First Stourbridge Military Vehicle Parade and was overwhelmed by the support it got from the general public and the traders in the town.

“Due to its success, I am doing it again and would love to get the town into a Remembrance Weekend atmosphere and help raise awareness of the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal.”
