Community's Pride for the Fallen
The installation of a Memorial Bench donated to the Town by ACS Fabrications.

Originally an idea by local residents to raise funds to provide a permanent memorial in the centre of Shifnal on 'Shifnal Chat' in October 2018, local businessmen, Mark Coates and Steve Elliman from ACS Fabrications went one better and have designed and built the memorial bench and donated it to the community in Shifnal..

Mark and Steve, both live in Shifnal and wanted to give something to the Town in honour of those who did not return from the World Wars. The finished product is a magnificent memorial and testament for all concerned.

Kim Lathe said "The red poppies are to remember the fallen service men and women and nurses who gave their lives and the two purple poppies signify the animals who died whilst playing their important part in the Wars".

The location of the bench will enable young and old to sit and enjoy a few moments of rest and reflection in the centre of Bradford Street.

Present in the photograph are Members of the Shifnal Branch of The Royal British Legion, Rev. Chris Thorpe from St. Andrew's Church, Mr Gerald Nickless, Mark (and Harriet) and Steve from ACS Fabrications and Shifnal Mayor, Cllr Robert Harrop.
