Last year the St Peters Residents Association applied for a grant in the 2017-18 round of funding from the Veterans SA - Anzac Day Commemoration Fund for the research, preparation and fixing of bronze tablets containing the names of the fallen Great War servicemen from the then Town of St Peters onto the St Peters Heroes Memorial in St Peters Street. The memorial, erected in 1922 by citizens of the former Town of St Peters, is one of the few Great War memorials that does not feature the names of the fallen.
We were delighted to have been awarded a $4,000 grant towards the anticipated $8,000 cost of the project. We were particularly pleased to receive the grant, as, of the 63 applications in this round of funding, only 37 were successful.
As the grant was less than the amount needed to complete the project we sought additional sources of funding from local businesses, and were very pleased when Oren Klemich & Judy Morris of Klemich Real Estate and Ken Otto from Otto Timber provided sponsorship and support. Andrew Green of Urban Living General Builders has generously offered to fix the plaques to the sides of the memorial.
Any additional donations towards the project would also be appreciated. If you would like to assist then please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will advise the bank account details.
The names of 145 men from the suburbs of Hackney, College Park, East Adelaide, St Peters, Stepney, Evandale and Maylands have been identified, and will be named on the tablets. SPRA would like to contact any relatives of these men, so that they can be involved in the re-dedication of the Memorial and to check the family details.
See the link for the NAMES and details.
The Norwood,Payneham & St Peters Council has been working closely with SPRA to facilitate a service to re-dedicate the St Peters Heroes Memorial with the new bronze name tablets.
The memorial will be re-dedicated on Anzac Eve, 24 April 2019 at 10.30am, in the presence of the Governor, Hieu Van Le.
All relatives, residents and anyone interested are welcome to attend.
