Me­mo­rial wall pro­gress­ing well

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - East Victoria Park -

THE Town of Vic­to­ria Park will de­cide at a spe­cial meet­ing tonight, if it will add an­other $54,000 to the $144,000 it has al­ready con­trib­uted to the Vic­to­ria Park RSL me­mo­rial wall project.

At last Tues­day’s or­di­nary coun­cil meet­ing, Vic­to­ria Park RSL sub­branch pres­i­dent Kelvin Lid­di­ard said he’d been in dis­cus­sions with Town rep­re­sen­ta­tives un­til as late as 2pm that day, work­ing to­wards an out­come for res­i­dents and ratepay­ers whose friends and rel­a­tives were among the 400-plus lo­cals who vol­un­teered their ser­vice in the dark­est days of WWI.

Mayor Trevor Vaughan said dis­cus­sions with Mr Lid­di­ard about the project had been pos­i­tive and coun­cil­lors would dis­cuss the mat­ter again at a spe­cial meet­ing from 6.30 tonight.

Mr Lid­di­ard hoped the me­mo­rial wall,with 432 bronze name plaques, would be ready for the An­zac cen­te­nary.
