Conservation work can now commence on the Cronulla War Memorial, after the Cronulla RSL Sub Branch was awarded a grant from the Community War Memorials Fund.

I congratulate the Sub Branch on their $10,000 grant to help preserve, protect and repair the memorial in Monro Park.

Our memorials recognise the immense contributions of veterans, so it’s important to maintain them as they age.

This is an enduring testament to their contribution and provides valuable learning opportunities for future generations.

I’m thrilled to see this project recognised among such a high calibre of applicants.

The grant will cover conservation work to the memorial including cleaning, repairs, and replacement of some plaques.

Organisations including memorial trusts, local councils and veteran groups can also apply for funding now. Applications close 26 July 2021.
