Fir Tree Pub. by Michael Jones (Member 10298944) on 28-Jan-2015
For me the best pub in Malvern was The Fir Tree on Worcester Road, especially around 1987. Frank Dean sadly missed.   
Denise Nee Smyth by Ian Berry (Member 10298284) on 11-Dec-2014
Hi I am trying to find an old girlfriend (and now I realize my true love)who used to live in Malvern. I last saw her in 1996 when she moved to Leominster. Her maiden name was Denise Smyth and she lived in Langland's avenue. Any help in finding her would be truly amazing.
Thank you - Ian

Great Malvern Winter Gardens - What happened? by John Hackett (Member 10230042) on 4-Aug-2008
I loved Malvern as a kid - used to come with my parents for days out. I loved the old Victorian Winter Gardens building with its fountains, sculptures and glass roof. The gardens themselves were magical for me as a child - lots of little places to play and explore, the lions on the steps down from the terrace, the noise of the teacups and water running from the fountain inside - fantastic.

    John I read your comment on the Victorian Malvern Winter Gardens. I met my lovely wife at a dance there in 1955. Dennis Wheeler and his orchestra played at all the dances. His band was one of the very best in the country but he chose to remain in "residence"
    I have to agree with you, my heart nearly broke to see the monstrosity that has taken it's place.
    One has to ask where did the beautiful ma... more >>
