The Sidmouth war memorial has been returned to its former glory thanks to a grant from the WD Booth Charitable Trust. 

Deviot resident Cathie Plowman was successful in obtaining the $3450 grant last year, which covered the costs of cleaning and repair works to the memorial.

Having been moved from what is now a road junction at Batman Highway and Spring Hill Road, the memorial has been situated adjacent to the Sidmouth Hall for 20 years. 

The memorial recognises six men from the region who lost their lives in World War I; W. Kelb, F.G Clark, G.E Wright, E.L Wright, A.J.E Evans and N.B.L Saunders. 

The repair works were carried out by stone mason Henry Kulinski.
