    A recently completed feasibility study (funded by a WW100 Lottery Grant) concluded that:

    “There is no other place with such a unique history and connection to the New Zealand soldiers of World War 1 and a small, typical rural town that supported and connected with a very large intrusion in its pastoral life. It signifies in a very particular way the impact of war separate from its confrontational and aggressive actions but silently and quietly insinuated into the day to day lives of people and with an ongoing connection. No other memorial can manifest this connection.”
