Bunnings Warehouse Mindarie teamed up with the local organisation for last Wednesday�s planting.

Quinns Rocks RSL committee member John Spargo said they were very impressed with how the new memorial was looking with final signage also fitted last week.

�It�s looking absolutely fabulous. We�re very pleased,� Mr Spargo said.

�We did have the roses in there but they�ve now put all their potted colour in and mulched it all up for us and it�s looking very nice. We have all the reds, blues, whites and yellows.

�We�re very happy Bunnings donated their time, materials and the plants for us and it�s very much appreciated by the RSL.�

Bunnings Warehouse Mindarie complex manager Peter Kingwell said it was an honour to help out veterans in the lead-up to the service commemorating the Gallipoli landings centenary.
