We Say/You Say: Anzac Day

Thomas Campbell Reporter from Hamilton Press

Hi Hamilton,

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 Hamilton Press.

Does NZ want two government rule?

Paul from Queenwood

To those of you who saw my post earlier today and wonder where it has disappeared. Alvina Edwards reported it, and Neighbourly removed the post as it was deemed "not local".
I would have thought democratic issues that affect our local government, water ownership, health etc are very local and very relevant today. Unfortunately Neighbourly doesn't want the discussion to take place.

Painting dark colors

Adam from Adam's Painting

Its popular to paint exterior houses black. The concern that black attracts the heat and breaks down quicker is easily managed by using Resene cool colors. You have to paint the primer in white, but that's followed by a dark color in cool colors removing any extra heat concern.
Here's a job we did in Gordonton using Resene Foundry in cool colour.
