Pub organises event in soldier's memory
A CHARITY event organised as a tribute to a Castle Bromwich soldier, who gave his life in the line of duty, will be taking place this weekend.
The fundraiser will be held in memory of Joe Murphy, an 18-year-old serviceman who was killed while serving in Afghanistan eight years ago.
It is set to take place at The Farthings pub on July 15, starting from 2pm. There will be a barbecue, bouncy castle and raffle.
Saturday promises to be a busy day locally. Aside from the Joe Murphy event, Chelmund's Day will be taking place over in Chelmsley Wood, while Smith's Wood Parish Council will be holding their own family fun day at the Community Gym (11am-4pm).
