We Say/You Say: Anzac Day

Thomas Campbell Reporter from Northern Outlook

Hi Canterbury,

How are you commemorating Anzac Day? What stories have been passed down through your whānau?

April 25 marks the 106-year anniversary of the Gallipoli landings, one of the most costly campaigns for the Allied Forces during World War I.

Anzac dawn and commemorative services up and down the country are scheduled to get underway after widespread cancellations last year, due to the nation being under Alert Level 4 restrictions.

The NZDF have advised of a reduced presence of military personnel at Anzac services due to deployment at MIQ facilities.

You can check out where the Anzac day services are on this interactive map on the RSA website.

Feel free and share your stories below and don't forget to type NFP if you don't want your comments used in the Northern Outlook.

Would you queue to be first to order at South Island's first Taco Bell?

Jake Kenny Reporter from Community News

Happy Monday neighbours,

The tacos have landed.

Taco Bell superfan Jessa Arcayera, 18, waited 90 minutes in line to get her hands on her favourite Taco Bell order: a beefy cheese burrito, crunchy taco wrap, cinnamon twists, fries and a Coke.

She was one of nearly 100 eager customers who donned taco shell hats and T-shirts outside the Taco Bell Eastgate store in Linwood, Christchurch – the South Island’s first – as they waited for the big purple bell to be rung and ribbon to be cut.
