TO mark the 100th anniversary of the end of World War One and those fallen during the war Tenbury Town Council has purchased two commemorative benches and a Silent Soldier.

Tenbury is preparing for the commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the end of the first world war in November 1918.

Students from Tenbury High School Ormiston Academy are also involved in a commemorative project that involves the painting of a mural.

The purchase of the benches has been made possible by the support of the Tenbury Area Partnership and Cllr. Ken Pollock representing Worcestershire County Council.

One bench will be in memory of not only those who fell but also those men from Tenbury and the surrounding area who served their country.

A War Horse bench has also been purchased to commemorate the millions of horses that died in the First World War.

Hundreds of horses from the area were involved and died during the war.

The benches and Silent Soldier are in the town’s Civic Garden located off Teme Street car park.

Sue Perry, Mayor of Tenbury is expected to lead the town’s Remembrance Day activities.
