Me­mo­rial Park ser­vice growing

Cockburn Gazette - - NEWS -

AN Anzac ser­vice will be held at the Banjup Me­mo­rial Park on Tues­day morn­ing.

Jan­dakot Vol­un­teer Bush Fire Brigade 4th Lieu­tenant Andy Mathers said the lo­cal ser­vice had grown con­sid­er­ably since the first in 1998, when 12 peo­ple at­tended.

More than 120 peo­ple vis­ited the park in 2016.

The park was es­tab­lished in 1920 in mem­ory of the 14 Banjup res­i­dents who fought in World War I. Six of the men were killed and four were wounded.

The ser­vice, sup­ported by the South Coogee Vol­un­teer Bush­fire Brigade and the Atwell Scouts, will take place at 8.30am and be fol­lowed by a gun­fire break­fast for a gold coin do­na­tion. The Me­mo­rial Park is near the corner of Ar­madale Road and War­ton Road.

Park­ing is avail­able at the Cock­burn Fre­man­tle Pis­tol Club on War­ton Road.
