Grant helps memorial restoration

Ararat Legacy Club will use a $6000 government grant to restore an historical memorial at Buangor Cemetery.

The club will restore the Cyril Bingham Brudenell White Memorial as part of the Anzac Centenary Local Grants Program.

Member for Wannon Dan Tehan confirmed the funding.

“The Centenary of Anzac will be the most significant national period of commemoration in our nation’s history”, Mr Tehan said.

“I am delighted that funding has been approved for this project in Ararat as submitted by the Ararat Legacy Club.”

“The outstanding service by General Sir Brudenell White to Australia as a soldier in the First World War, as chairman of the Commissioners of the Federal Public Service 1923-27, and Chief of the General Staff and First Member of the Military Board 1940-41, warrants due recognition.

“Restoration of the monument and grave at the Buangor Cemetery will preserve the memorial and save a significant part of our military history, particularly for future generations, as well as present tourism opportunities such as the creation of a Remembrance Trail.”
