Work on Glenbrook Armistice Memorial Pathway Well Underway
Member for Macquarie, Susan Templeman met with Blue Mountains Woodturners to take a sneak peek at the hand crafted sculptures which will become a major feature of the memorial pathway.
“I’m delighted to be able to contribute $8,450 of Armistice Centenary grant funding towards this project, which will provide a lasting memorial space for the lower Mountains,” Ms Templeman said.
Ms Templeman said the memorial pathway will feature four unique sculptures, hand crafted by the Blue Mountains Woodturners, representing the three armed services and Medical Corps, as well as a time capsule.
“I’m in awe of the planning that has gone into making this memorial garden a reality,” she said.
“The four memorial sculptures will be placed at varying heights so that at exactly 11am on Armistice Day, the poles will create a single shadow, marking the place where the time capsule is to be buried.
“The garden and memorial pathway will serve as a lasting reminder of the sacrifices made by those who have served in conflicts, as well as providing a place for peaceful contemplation,” she said.
2018 is the 100th anniversary of the signing of the Armistice between the Allies and Germany, which led to the cessation of hostilities on the Western Front.
The Armistice Centenary Grants Program honours that event and support projects or activities that commemorate the end of the First World War.
