Great that there is a Wednesfield History Week!

it was on the 24th May 1962 that Queen Elizabeth the Second visited Wednesfield.

also on the 4th March 2006 The Secetary General Mr Don McKinnon of the Commonwealth visited Wednesfield and Coppice High School.

Just two important visitors to Wednesfield in recent years!
