WAR MEMORIAL CANCELS BIG THINGS IN STORE OPEN DAY

THIS SUNDAY, 18 September 2011

Due to the chemical fire on 16 September at Mitchell, the Memorial has made a decision not to go ahead with the planned Big Things in Store Open Day on Sunday 18 September.

Because the Memorial is unable to access its buildings at this stage, it has been decided to cancel the event.

The Director of the Memorial Steve Gower apologises for any inconvenience and disappointment this decision may cause. ‘In the past it has been a wonderful event experience by up to 5,000 people. This year in particular, visitors would have had the chance to view the newly acquire Sabre jet before its complete restoration as a RAAF Aicraft'.

At this stage, given the unknowns, a decision on the possible rescheduling of the event is yet to be made.

For those disappointed visitors the Memorial invites you to come to our main building in Campbell this Sunday.
