ANZAC Day 2015

26 March 2015

Work began late last year on Hallett Cove's much-anticipated War Memorial, with the initiative scheduled to be finished for the commemorations being organised to mark the centenary of the Gallipoli landings.

Work began late last year on Hallett Cove's much-anticipated War Memorial, with the initiative scheduled to be finished for the commemorations being organised to mark the centenary of the Gallipoli landings.

The Lions Club of Hallett Cove is organising a dawn memorial event at the foreshore for the centenary on 25 April 2015, while a youth vigil will be held during the night leading up to the dawn service (details below). This is the first time that Hallett Cove will host a commemoration and I hope it will be the first of many.

The project is focused on the southern end of Hallett Cove’s foreshore park, with works including:

•    a low standing stone memorial wall
•    feature garden beds
•    flag poles and lighting
•    paving
•    memorial seats
•    a new shelter structure, BBQ and picnic tables
•    associated landscaping, turf, irrigation and planting.

It has been a privilege to be involved in this project for the last few years and exciting to see it finally unfolding.
