A memorial to wartime service will be erected in Thirroul’s Station Street next month, and the Thirroul Neighbourhood Centre needs your input.
The centre is co-ordinating the project, which they say will be a respectful image of wartime service.
Locals are invited to get along to the Community Centre on Friday October 16 between 10am-11am and 3.30-4.30pm to share ideas and help plan the project.
“Remembrance Day, November 11, is a time to think about sacrifices made by our war veterans and the mural will reflect this,” says Neighbourhood Centre Co-ordinator Emily Messieh. “As well as difficulties encountered by all during war, as well as the hope for peace. Consultation with RSL groups around the area have helped identify appropriate content for the mural.
“We would also like to hear from members of the community who know a bit of local history and have heard wartime stories across the generations,” says Emily. “We need stories of a life at home during war, charitable acts that have helped see people through, and we also need enthusiastic art and history students to add depth to the project.”
If you would like to know more, or be involved, please contact Thirroul Neighbourhood Centre on 4267 2500.
