Lakeside Veterans in Step group brings project to reality

November 03, 2020

Halcyon Lakeside’s Veterans in Step group and the local Grey Army have completed a special project to honour members of the community who have served in the forces.

The group has enhanced the existing flagpole area, which is an area in the community where fallen veterans can be honoured on significant days like ANZAC and Remembrance Day.

The group had a special working bee to dig out the area, while a kind Grey Army builder and his son created the first row of the wall. Talented homeowner Steve Blackbourne then took the reigns to complete the rest of the works.

Special donations from Bob and Heather Lippiatt and Geoff and Barbara Williams helped bring the project to reality.

Homeowners at Halcyon Lakeside will be able to use the enhanced new area for this year's Remembrance Day.
