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.

Leaving Neighbourly

Raewyn Neighbourly Lead from New Brighton

So I've decided to leave Neighbourly - been a Lead since the very beginning and I've just had enough of what they want us to do and what we are not allowed to do.

I've written a letter, wait for a reply and then will leave. It's just not the same anymore. You can't do anything, you can't say anything and I feel for you all who are still. here.

I've basically been the only Lead here for New Brighton. Some have come and gone but never done anything. I've done all the events. Well I've given up now.

All the best to you all - take care and see you on the outside!

One less business on here because I can't post anything - even though have 4 girls to feed, a husband and an almost son-in-law.

So if you ever need any photography - won't say my name because it will be deleted but it is under my name lol hahaha

Take care all
Raewyn
Departing Lead for New Brighton
