The Shire of Carnarvon is proud to announce the receipt of a $10,000 grant from the Saluting Their Service - Commemorative Grants program for the establishment of a War Memorial in Coral Bay. This significant funding will enable the community to finally have a dedicated space to honour and commemorate the individuals who have bravely served our country.

Coral Bay, a beloved destination for both residents and visitors, has been lacking a formal memorial site to recognise the sacrifices made by those who fought for our nation. The Shire of Carnarvon is committed to rectifying this gap in the community's history and cultural recognition.

CEO Andrea Selvey emphasised the importance of this project, stating, "The War Memorial in Coral Bay is a significant achievement in line with the Shire's Strategic Community Plan. It underscores our commitment to ensuring that our community honours its history and celebrates the diverse cultures that contribute to our identity."

The Coral Bay War Memorial project aligns seamlessly with the Shire's dedication to fostering a sense of unity, pride, and remembrance within the community. The Shire of Carnarvon extends its gratitude to the Saluting Their Service - Commemorative Grants program for their generous support, enabling the realisation of this significant and meaningful initiative.
