The event on Saturday (September 24) is being supported by a number of different groups including the Royal British Legion Riders Branch, the Round Table, Ladies Circle, Pathways Project, Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service and Staffordshire Police, while local artist Celia Houghton will be creating a collage marking the milestone.

Taking place between 10am and 4pm at The Grangemoor WMC on Cannock Road, the open day will also give visitors a chance to find out more about the work Burntwood Branch and join them.

A spokesperson explained: “We are particularly keen to set up a youth section and women’s section and it is hoped the open day will attract a number of new members, particularly from these areas of the local community.”
