Federal Member for Bass Ross Hart has announced a $9,000 grant for the Bridport RSL.

“As a local member it’s great to be able to deliver for our community, particularly the North East and our veterans community,” Mr Hart said.

On Wednesday Mr Hart met with the President of the Bridport RSL, Simon Hirst to discuss the installation of a commemorative plaque and lighting made possible through the Armistice Centenary Grants program.

The commemorative bronze plaque with 31 names of Bridport World War 1 Veterans will be placed in the new commemorative garden at the Bridport RSL and Community Club.
