Community's Pride for the Fallen
Local fundraisers, Members of the Royal British Legion and Shifnal residents celebrate the installation of Memorial Bench in the centre of the Town

Originally an idea to provide a permanent memorial in the centre of Shifnal on 'Shifnal Chat' in October 2018, resident Kim Lathe, along with fellow residents in the Town raised funds by holding local events and obtaining donations from the community and Crowd Funding.

Local businessmen, Mark Coates and Steve Elliman from ACS Fabrications in Telford offered to design and manufacture the bench which is a magnificent memorial for those who did not return from the World Wars.

Kim 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.

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.
