Fundraising to complete a brass statue of Private Ted d'Auvergne to be placed in a public landscaped area by the Waihao Forks Hotel.
Private Ted d'Auvergne left his beer at the Waihao Forks Pub and went of to war to fight for his country. Along with so many other soldiers, he never returned to finish his beer, and so the iconic story of Ted's bottle begins.
Like so many other young men (and women) from around our district and our country who gave their lives for us, we need to remember Ted. His story touches so many of us and so to honour our soldiers a life sized sculpture of Ted dAuvergne has been commissioned. The sculpture will be made of brass and will be created by former Oamaru-based artist Don Paterson in the style of The Bushman sculpture in Waimate's main street.
The life-sized sculpture will have an accompanying information platform and is planned to be unveiled in time for Anzac Day 2020.
A 'Statue Committee' has been formed to oversee and manage this project and the Waimate District Charitable Foundation is happy to support them by providing this page and banking all donations made towards this project.
