In January this year, the Federal Government approved a number of grants to improve our local war memorials. This is an excellent result for the families in Hartley whose relatives have fought in conflicts across the globe as we lead into the Centenary of ANZAC.
The successful applicants were:
- St Martins Anglican Church, Campbelltown
- Campbelltown City Council
- St George’s Church Historical Group, Magill
2015 is an important year to remember and reflect on the courage and sacrifice of our servicemen and women. I congratulate our successful applicants on this achievement.
As a member of the Centenary of ANZAC Committee, we worked cooperatively and hard to ensure our community received the necessary grants.
