A memorial to wartime conscientious objectors appears to be completed.

The Baxter Memorial Peace Garden, at the intersection of Albany and George Sts in Dunedin, will be officially opened on October 29.

Its opening had been postponed because of Covid-19 restrictions.

Deputy Prime Minister Grant Robinson is set to officially open it.

The memorial will commemorate World War 1 conscientious objector and Brighton resident Archibald Baxter and other conscientious objectors.
