Poppy Project: Never Forgetting the Sacrifices

THE CENTENARY OF GOSFORD CENOTAPH is in 2024. In readiness to commemorate Gosford Cenotaph’s centenary in 2024, historian, Merril Jackson, in partnership with Gosford RSL Sub Branch applied in late 2021 to receive a COMMUNITY WAR MEMORIALS GRANT funded by the NSW Government. Funding received in 2022 secured the professional services of Long Blackledge Architects to provide a Conservation Heritage Asset Report. A thorough examination and assessment completed by mid-2022 provided recommendations in the heritage asset report, which now guides the restoration process. See post images of the condition and an image of the assessment process by the Heritage architect, Elisha Long. poppy project images
A further COMMUNITY WAR MEMORIALS GRANT submission in 2022 was approved. This funding enables Stage 1 Restoration work to be achieved, with work to commence from Wednesday, January 18, 2023, by The Office of OneCrown Cemeteries, Monuments Team, Rookwood. To preserve Gosford's historically significant war memorial into the future, due to the restorative work required, this will be an ongoing project, with further funding required to complete the restoration.
