Refurbished war memorial bench in Malvern Link unveiled

Craig Gibbons 18th Apr, 2017

A WAR memorial bench in Malvern Link has been refurbished and handed over to the town council.

The bench, located on the corner of Church Road and Lower Howsell Road, commemorates the death of Private Norman Casswell Sayer who was killed at Vimy Ridge, France, on April 10, 1917, while serving with the Canadian army during the First World War.

In 2015 the bench was found in a very poor state of repair so residents gathered to carry out a full refurbishment.

And the completed work was unveiled last Monday (April 10).

Malvern Mayor Coun Cynthia Palmer accepted the bench on behalf of the town council who will now maintain it for the foreseeable future.

A full repair of the memorial bench was initially needed in 1988 due to vandalism and the work was carried out by blacksmith Grant Morgan.
