Three of the Eurobodalla’s war memorials will get some additional care ahead of Remembrance Day thanks to a NSW Government Community War Memorials grant.

Eurobodalla Shire Council advises that lettering at the “Tilba war memorial will be regilded and access will be easier with a new concrete path constructed from the service station driveway.”

“The Wagonga Street war memorial in Narooma will see memorial plaques resurfaced and some repointing of the sandstone column.

“At Batemans Bay, the war memorial will see full replacement of lettering and correction of two misspelt entries – F. Brooke and L.H. Brooke will both have the trailing ‘e’ removed from their surnames. The gap where the obelisk joins the base will also be filled.”

Work will be finished before November 11 – Remembrance Day and overseen by Council’s heritage advisor.
