The last load of concrete has been poured to complete the new ramp and walkway at Quirindi’s iconic War Memorial. The restoration works also include installaton of an Automatic GPS synchronised system, allowing for daylight saving adjustment, plus a battery backup master clock system, to provide accurate timekeeping. Master Clockmakers from Sydney have carried out this work. 

The Memorial, built from sandstone, is the centrepiece of the round-about at Anzac Square. It is an important element of the community and the focal point for ANZAC Day, Long Tan, Remembrance Day and honouring other conflicts that locals have served in. It is great to see it being conserved and maintained to protect the integrity and heritage value of the memorial for future generations,” said Liverpool Plains Shire Council (LPSC) Mayor, Councillor Andrew Hope.

The work has been carried out with the assistance of $60,000 funding LPSC secured  under the War Memorial Grants Program.

“It is a moving experience walking around the memorial and its Dedication stone, inscriptions and the names of fallen service-men and women engraved on the glazed marble tablets. It is pause for reflection as you read the words Paid The Supreme Sacrifice - Lest We Forget,” he continued 

“Installation of a safety handrail should take place about the 19/20/21 of July and then the fencing and traffic control measures can be removed. A re-turf and planting will commence after the handrail installation,” Councillor Hope concluded.
