The Memorial Gates & Playground were established in memory of those from the district who died in service or were killed in action in both World Wars. A plaque was added to the gates in 1995 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the end of World War Two and is also in memory of Reverend Chaplain Waugh who was accidentally killed in New Guinea during World War Two.
