A fine outlook

Taking in the view from atop the cenotaph in Queens Gardens, Dunedin, are Bramwell scaffolders (from left) Alec Tu’unaga, Dallas Gilliand and Siale Taiala.

Mr Gilliand said parts of the structure had to be resealed and there was little left to do.

He was humbled to be one of the first people to climb the cenotaph since 1920.

The scaffold was 25.5m high and the view was breathtaking, he said.

Our journalists are your neighbours

We are the South's eyes and ears in crucial council meetings, at court hearings, on the sidelines of sporting events and on the frontline of breaking news.

As our region faces uncharted waters in the wake of a global pandemic, Otago Daily Times continues to bring you local stories that matter.

We employ local journalists and photographers to tell your stories, as other outlets cut local coverage in favour of stories told out of Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.
