A ceremony commemorating the opening of the South Grafton Cenotaph will be held on Anzac Day, April 25, this week.

Currently situated alongside the levee wall overlooking the Clarence River in Rotary Park Boulevard off Through Street, the imposing granite obelisk, which is engraved with the names of men from South Grafton, Sherwood Creek, Chambigne, Blaxland’s Creek, OBX Creek, and Coutts Crossing, who served and lost their lives during World War I (WWI), previously stood in nearby Skinner Street before being relocated to its present location.

The commemoration ceremony will commence at 11am.

All are welcome to attend to pay their respects.
