Memorial a place to honour soldiers

THE local community will have a chance to come together at the Cambridge War Memorial ANZAC Day Service to remember those who lost their lives for the country.

The service, to be held at 9.30am, will feature guest speakers from Cambridge Primary School, the Cambridge Volunteer Fire Brigade and the local community.

The service began in 2015 and was established to coincide with the ANZAC centenary.

The memorial was designed and constructed at the Cambridge Memorial Oval by members of the Cambridge Volunteer Fire Brigade.

It consists of three large sandstone plinths to represent the air force, army and navy.

The memorial is surrounded by 23 rosemary bushes to represent each of those who served in World War One from the Cambridge district.

The site also features a World War II gun.

Along with donations from local businesses, funding was granted by the Australian Federal Government ANZAC Centenary Local Grants Program.
