The prospect of a new cenotaph for Tapanui has been boosted by a funding pledge from the West Otago Community Board.

During its meeting last week, the board pledged up to $10,000 towards a new cenotaph on or near the Tapanui RSA grounds.

At present, Tapanui’s community gym houses its honours boards.

Board chairwoman Barbara Hannasaid an open-air memorial would allow full-time access to the roll of honour, and a future focus for Anzac Day ceremonies in the town.

The RSA will decide at its next meeting whether to proceed with the project.
