The Yamba Cenotaph will soon be rejuvenated thanks to $6820 grant from the Nationals in NSW Government, Clarence MP Chris Gulaptis has announced on site with Yamba RSL Sub-Branch members.
“This war memorial has been a key feature of Yamba since it was dedicated on 14 August 1923,” Mr Gulaptis said.
“The RSL is planning to render the surrounding brick fence, and also render the base and the steps of the Cenotaph, where there are currently broken tiles and missing grout and water damage.
