After the moving scenes of ANZAC Day, extra funding for the repair and rebuilding of local war memorials has been announced by the State Government.
All RSL Sub-Branches, veterans’ groups and local councils are being encouraged to apply.
Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast, Adam Crouch, said up to $10,000 per project is available through the NSW Government’s Community War Memorials Fund.
“The Central Coast community is so proud of those who put their lives on the line to protect our freedom and way of life,” Crouch said.
“War memorials are a very important way that we honour their service and sacrifice and provide a place for people to come together and remember.”
Funding will be provided for projects such as conservation assessments, honour roll repairs, environmental assessments, cleaning and repairs.
Christ Church Memorial at Gosford Anglican Church, Woy Woy War Memorial and the newly relocated Terrigal Beach War Memorial have all been previous beneficiaries of the grant.
Applications close on Monday, July 26.
