Hills to Hawkesbury Living Magazine - - News -

Mem­ber for Hawkes­bury Do­minic Per­rot­tet and Min­is­ter for Vet­er­ans Af­fairs David El­liott to­day an­nounced the first round of 2017 fund­ing for the Com­mu­nity War Memo­ri­als Fund (CWMF) is now open.

The CWMF is de­signed to pro­tect and re­pair lo­cal war memo­ri­als, which pre­serves the An­zac legacy.

Mr Per­rot­tet urged Coun­cils to ap­ply for the fund, which pro­vides the op­por­tu­nity for all NSW com­mu­ni­ties to ac­cess up to $10,000.

The CWMF has re­cently funded the paint­ing of the Bel­lata War Memo­rial Hall, re­pairs to the Maclean Ceno­taph, a con­ser­va­tion as­sess­ment re­port for the Bro­ken Hill War Memo­rial as well as the in­stal­la­tion of bar­ri­ers around the Boer War memo­rial and WWII RAAF Memo­rial in Lis­more to pro­tect them from dam­age.

Ap­pli­ca­tions will be as­sessed by the State War Memo­rial Com­mit­tee, which is made up of NSW RSL, Pub­lic Works Ad­vi­sory, NSW Of­fice of En­vi­ron­ment and Her­itage and Vet­er­ans’ Af­fairs.
