Ceno­taph fin­ish­ing touches un­der way

Isis Town and Country - - News -

WORK has wrapped up on a ma­jor part of the re­fur­bish­ment of Gin Gin ceno­taph.

Con­trac­tors packed up some of their ma­te­ri­als ear­lier this week, although there is still some way to go un­til the whole project is fin­ished.

The Bo­fors gun that sat in the cen­tre of the me­dian strip has been re­stored and will be repo­si­tioned in the near fu­ture, while there may still be work to do on the gar­dens that used to be at the site.

Gin Gin RSL Sub-Branch pres­i­dent Richard Cu­ley said the roses would be re­stored some time af­ter An­zac Day.

Mr Cu­ley said prepa­ra­tions for the day’s ser­vices had been with­out sig­nif­i­cant speed bumps, and cred­ited the An­zac Day Sub Com­mit­tee for its work on en­sur­ing they went smoothly.

“It’s been re­ally, re­ally good,“he said.

“The sub-com­mit­tee has been great, fundrais­ing and get­ting ev­ery­thing or­gan­ised.

“There’s a lit­tle more to do at the ceno­taph but it’ll be done soon.“

Dawn ser­vice: As­sem­ble RSL Hall at 3.45am and pa­rade to ceno­taph at 4am.

Civic ser­vice: As­sem­ble at 9.15am and pa­rade from 9.30am.
