War memorial repairs completed

The Boer War memorial at the northern end of the Oval in Dunedin has had its stonework cleaned and repaired.

The scaffolding which was put up around the statue about three months ago has been removed.

The memorial was created in 1906 and commemorates Otago soldiers who died in the Boer War from 1899 to 1902.
