Lee Evans today announced that Thirroul RSL Sub Branch has received a grant from the Community War Memorials Fund to replace pavers in front of Wall of Remembrance at Woodward Park, Thirroul.
“Community war memorials stand as reminders of our great State’s fallen soldiers, and this funding will help to protect and restore them,” said Lee Evans.
“Keeping war memorials in good condition is a significant way for communities to pay tribute to lost loved ones and all those who served their country.
“The NSW Government is ensuring the sacrifices of our servicemen and women are remembered with dignity and respect,” Lee Evans said.
Minister for Citizenship and Communities, Victor Dominello, said 24 war memorials in towns and suburbs across NSW will be upgraded and maintained due to more than $196,000 in NSW Government funding.
“We have a responsibility to honour the sacrifices that NSW servicemen and women made for our community,” Mr Dominello said.
“Grant applications to the Community War Memorials Fund are open twice per year and I encourage any community which needs funds for its memorial to consider this program.” he said.
