Incredible Tribute To Mark the 75th Anniversary of VE Day and NHS and Key Workers Response To CoVid19

This imposing work of art recognises the contribution of all those who ensured Victory in Europe 75 years ago and the NHS and keyworkers that are making such a difference during the CoVid19 virus outbreak. Malvern Rugby Club are delighted and proud to be associated with and lend its support to this incredible tribute by our near neighbours and great friends at Fleet Line Markers Ltd. The art work covers the whole of our first team pitch measuring 100 metres by 50 metres with the rainbow stripes each being 2.5 metres in width. It has taken five days to complete by the talented team from Fleet Line Markers Ltd.

Our club is embedded in the Malvern Hills community. Many of our players, their partners, parents of players and our non-playing members are doctors, nurses, key workers and many are or have been proud to serve our Armed Forces. Malvern Hills District has like all communities been impacted by the CoVid19 outbreak and the service of our players and members of the club has been a big part of the response. Likewise, the town and district contributed to Victory in Europe with its men and women serving in the forces. Its industry contributing to the war effort and many serving at local military establishments or working on the land to feed the nation. We hope this tribute will be seen world-wide and we thank all those involved in the international effort to protect us, prevent further outbreaks and pioneer a medical solution to the outbreak. We look forward to the resuming our rugby and seeing and making new rugby friends. Malvern Hills District look forward to welcoming visitors from near and far to what we think is one of the most beautiful parts of the UK, once they are able to do so.
