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.

Discover Papanui’s new standout lifestyle

Oceania Healthcare

Oceania’s newest luxury village, The Bellevue, is beautifully set up for you to keep active, close to shops and the city centre.

Local resident, Kate Fraser, recently moved to The Bellevue and loves the convenience of apartment living. “When I walked in the door, I knew immediately I was going to live here.” On a typical day you could start out with a barista-made coffee and a treat at the café, get in your steps at the gym, or join neighbours for a game of pool before moving to happy hour. “The village has a feeling of a resort hotel. I thought — it reminds me of that hotel in Spain.” Kate added.

Call Brenda today on 0800 333 688 and stop by for a coffee and something delicious from the chef to get a taste for The Bellevue lifestyle.

We’re just down the road at 21 Windermere Road, Papanui, Christchurch.
