Coun Paul Truswell (Lab, Middleton Park) said the new features will prove “a visible reminder to present and future generations of the debt that we continue to owe them”.
And Coun Judith Blake (Lab, Middleton Park) added that the benches show the community’s appreciation of all those who served during the First World War.
