Memorial seat at Patonga for Malcolm Waters

A memorial seat will be installed on the grassed area, adjacent to the boat ramp at Dark Corner, Patonga, in memory of the late Mr Malcolm Waters.

The seat will recognise "his extensive contribution and outstanding voluntary service to the Central Coast community".

An application to install the seat made by his wife Ms Shirley Waters was approved by Central Coast Council at its meeting on Tuesday, November 9.

Ms Waters will be responsible for the cost of purchase, installation and ongoing maintenance of the seat.

The council assessment stated: "A request for a commemorative memorial will be considered only if the nominee has been deceased for at least six months, was of good repute and not likely to be the subject of controversy."

It said that Mr Waters died on March 26 this year.

"The proposed seat is in memory of Mr Malcolm Waters for his volunteer work with Woy Woy Meals on Wheels for 15 years and with the Red Cross for 13 years as a Telecross volunteer.

"During his working career as a solicitor, Mr Waters also volunteered his service once a month as a duty solicitor at Minda Children's Courts, in Lidcombe, to appear on behalf of children who required legal representation."

Letters of support were provided from The Australian Red Cross and Meals in Wheels Central Coast and the Patonga Beach Progress Association.

Progress Association secretary Mr John Quigg said the association fully supported the application for a commemorative bench seat and plaque.

"This support is based on Malcolm's long association with Patonga and his attachment and appreciation of the village and the local community.

"Malcolm was a valued member of the community and through his actions made a strong contribution to the lives of many people."
