Memorial facelift paid for by state and federal grants

Woy Woy War Memorial monument

The War Memorial at the Woy Woy waterfront has undergone a facelift.

At almost 100 years old, Council said the Memorial was in need of some love with Council teams recently working to repair and protect the surviving historic fabric of the cenotaph and repair missing stone portions.

With funding from the NSW Government’s Community War Memorial Fund, works involved the stabilising of the cracked spire, fixing the micro fissure cracking of the spire’s base blocks, and repairing the lead lettering on the marble inscription plates.

Council said funding provided by the Federal Government’s Saluting Their Service Program then enabled the completion of the memorial’s restoration including the removal and replacement of the failed epoxy patches, armatures, and large missing stone portions of both the Pedestal Base and Plinth.

Council thanked the Rookwood Cemetery Monumental Heritage team for their work on the site.
