Work continues on Avenue of Honour refurbishment
Stage two of the rejuvenation of Dimboola’s Avenue of Honour at the Secondary College commenced on Sunday with the removal of the old trees on the south side of Anzac Drive.

Despite the cold and foggy conditions, a large team of volunteers organised through Grainflow and the Dimboola Sub Branch of the R.S.L. spent Sunday morning cutting down and removing the old trees in preparation for the planting of healthy young native eucalypts in their place next month.

These trees were planted around 60 years ago and were reaching the end of their life and the Dimboola Sub Branch of the R.S.L. has approved their removal and replacement in order to maintain this significant memorial to the district’s fallen soldiers.

The first stage, which was completed in October last year, involved the removal of the older trees from the inside of the Drive which were then replaced with trees of the same species as the newer ones planted adjacent to the Matron Paschke memorial over the last six years.
