GREAT POTENTIAL OF NEW SPORTS GROUND...
Set in a natural ampitheatre, the main playing area of the
Willaston Sports Ground is in the embryo stages of a project
that could produce one of the ﬁnest ovals in the state.
Already it has many advantages that sport lovers from
other districts would envy.
It has good access roads, unlimited parking space, a
second-to-none view of the oval from any part of the
ground and gently sloping folds surrounding it will give
compettors protecton from tricky cross-winds.

Anzac plaque for Wasleys
WASLEYS will hold an Anzac
Day service for the first time this
year, following the decision to
install a commemorative plaque
at the town's institute.
The plaque has been a Wasleys
Community Group project, with
members wanting a focal point for
locals to gather and remember fallen
It is expected the plaque will be
placed between the two flagpoles in

the area will also be decorated with

with the project and said the new
plaque would be wonderful for the
"Wasleys has never had a war
memorial, ever," Mrs Shepherd said.
"They do have a couple of plaques
in our institute for the First World
War and for the second.
"But you can imagine how
difficult it is if you're trying to do an
Anzac Day service, because there's
nothing there to be a focal point."
So far, the project has not come at
an expense to the group, with local
stonemason Dave Wilason donating
the plaque and Mantina Quarries
also providing a piece of bluestone.
Mrs Shepherd said the public's
generosity was very much
"It's been wonderful, everyone has
been very, very kind," she said.
"We are hoping in the next few
weeks or so that we will get all of
this put together.

can have a proper service and focal

Mrs Shepherd added the group
was keen to hear from any veterans
with a connection to Wasleys, or
from their families.
"We'd like to notify veterans who
have connections to Wasleys...and
invite them to participate in our
service," she said.
"We would be delighted to have
as many of them as possible either
participate or attend."

UPGRADES to the Two Wells war
memorial are nearing completion,
with the local RSL expecting to finish
the project within the coming month.
The Two Wells RSL sub-branch has built
a tribute to the 42 fallen Australian soldiers
as well as the 10 military dogs killed in
Afghanistan as part of the upgrade.
A steel, solar-powered rising sun was
also included in the project last year.
President Tony Flaherty said the RSL
was in the process of installing three stones
for the navy, army and air force as well as
planting roses at the site to complete the
"People from each of the navy, army, air
force...can go to the war memorial and see
a stone in the memory of their fallen mates
but also one to all the guys who actually
served, so they get a mention," he said.
Mr Flaherty said the RSL would then
look at setting a date for an official unveil-
"What we'd like to do is get the gover-
nor and then go over to the community
centre and have a concert," he said.
He said the project was largely funded
by the RSL but received great support
from local community and business.
The upgraded memorial will be featured
as part of this year's Anzac Day service.
