Volunteers clean up historical landmarks

Members of the community rallied to spruce up the Jarrahdale War Memorial.

The town of Jarrahdale is receiving a spruce up with new benches and the revitalisation of the War Memorial.

Jarrahdale Community Collective (JCC) have been cleaning up the War Memorial with help from members of the community, visiting the site to scrub, refine and improve the memorial.

Utes were loaned by members of the community to get rid of the dead branches and leaves surrounding the memorial.

Wood donated by the Mandjedal Scout camp and local Debra Whittle, was used to replace the slats of the benches which were worn from years of use.

The wood was used by the Serpentine Jarrahdale Men’s Shed to create new bench planks.

The JCC also often holds litter pickings each month, with members from the community helping to pick up bags of rubbish from key areas in Jarrahdale.

The Shire of Serpentine Jarrahdale also had three new benches installed near the entrance to the Jarrahdale Cemetery.

According to the Shire the benches aim to provide visitors a comfortable place for quiet reflection.
The installation of the benches follows beautification work that was carried out at the cemetery earlier this year.
