Beresfield RSL Sub Branch Anzac Memorial
Our Shed has offered to maintain the Anzac Memorial at Beresfield. It has been neglected over the years and deserves to be maintained in a proper manner.
Meetings with Newcastle City Council have resulted in the overgrown shrubs and weeds being removed.
The Vietnams War Veterans have kindly donated a refurbished cannon and arranged for it to be installed on a concrete slab.
The gardens have been started and looking a bit barren at the moment but there is still a way to go and with the help of local businesses we hope to be able to present a new look Memorial Garden by Anzac Day 2016.
Some plants were added but it was decided that a more pleasing outlook would be achieved if they were rearranged.
This may result in additional plants being purchased but in the end, it will be worthwhile.
1st April-Well the garden has been finished. There is no doubt that when a community project like this is taken on it gives a real pleasureable feeling to see the end product.
