Burwood members clean war memorial after 30+ years
It took three RTBU members three days to get it perfect, but Burwood’s war memorial has now had its first proper clean in more than 30 years, just in time for Anzac Day.
RTBU delegate for Burwood depot Mark Delohery, bus operator Sandra Carroll and Institute Secretary Robert Boudan gave up their own time and worked in some pretty stormy conditions to clean the war memorial site. Robert cut back the overgrown hedges, Mark gave the footpath and the sandstone memorial a good clean with his pressure cleaner and Sandra brightened the area with flowers.
The memorial was sparkling clean and looking great for the Burwood depot’s Anzac Day Ceremony, where the flag was lowered to half mast and Staff supervisor Andrew Bryson read the speech of a digger who died at Gallipoli for Australia.
