Two bronze plaques have a new lease of life, thanks to fund­ing sup­port from Waipa¯ District Coun­cil.

The World War II me­mo­rial plaques, which mark the en­trance to Me­mo­rial Park in Cam­bridge, were re­stored af­ter re­ceiv­ing fund­ing from coun­cil’s her­itage fund.

Vivi­enne Clarke, trea­surer of the Cam­bridge Rugby Union, said the plaques were orig­i­nally in­stalled on Anzac Day in 1952 as a me­mo­rial to lo­cal men who lost their lives in World War II.

“We’re proud to have re­stored these plaques as a fit­ting me­mo­rial to those who lost their lives.

“With­out the her­itage fund the plaques would’ve con­tin­ued to be ne­glected and for­got­ten.”

To co­in­cide with work on the plaques, Coun­cil’s parks team re­fur­bished the con­crete pil­lars and in­stalled a new pedes­trian gate. The Cam­bridge Rugby Union re­fur­bished the en­trance gates at the park.

Waipa¯ District Coun­cil’s her­itage fund has $70,000 avail­able each year to sup­port projects that help pre­serve and en­hance the district’s unique her­itage.

The fund­ing can be used to as­sist with phys­i­cal works for her­itage build­ings, ob­jects, restor­ing nat­u­ral veg­e­ta­tion or habi­tats and cul­tural or ar­chae­o­log­i­cal sites.

The lat­est round also awarded $8145 for restor­ing the bal­cony doors at Cam­bridge’s Ma­sonic Ho­tel and Wil­low Tree erad­i­ca­tion and reveg­e­ta­tion of wet­lands.

Ap­pli­ca­tions for the next fund­ing round close on 30 De­cem­ber 2018.
