Memorial for Luke Batty

The Tyabb Cricket Club continues to mourn the tragic loss of its young member, Luke Batty, who died on its grounds in February 2014. In honour of Luke’s life, the Tyabb community have raised almost $120,000 to rebuild the cricket nets and erect a walk-through memorial garden where the club’s practise facilities formerly stood. It offers a peaceful place for the community to remember Luke.

In October, Luke’s mother, Rosie Batty, was made Victoria’s Australian of the Year for her work as a domestic violence campaigner. She has also joined the Tyabb Cricket Club’s committee, in a show of strength and support to a community who has helped to create such a beautiful tribute to her son.

RSL revives memorial fountain

War memorials in towns across the country are being restored to honour the Centenary of Anzac, with a new drinking fountain the latest upgrade to Taree’s Fotheringham Park.
