Twenty-two war memorials across the state are set to receive a share of over $125,000 in funding in round 2 of the NSW Government Community War Memorials Fund.

Member for Bathurst announced Lithgow Small Arms Factory Museum as a successful recipient. Lithgow Small Arms Factory Museum was awarded $6290 for conservation works to the First World War Roll of Honour.

“War memorials are places of remembrance that help us to understand our history. It is important that we keep them in good condition through careful repair and maintenance,” Mr Toole said.

“I am pleased to announce this funding, which will be used to refurbish a World War I honour roll board that is displayed in the museum and preserve it for years to come.

President and Custodian Donna White was grateful to receive the funding.

“Thank you to the NSW Government for this funding, which will help to bring the memorial back to its original state so we can continue to appropriately and respectfully honour the service of Lithgow’s veterans from the First World War,” Ms White said.

Forty-six applications from 34 local government areas were received during this round, which closed on 13 February. They were assessed by the State War Memorials Committee.
