Yesterday, the Returned and Services Association (RSA) cancelled all public Anzac Day events. Taking this into consideration, and the restrictions in place in response to COVID-19, Anzac Day civic services at Ngatea War Memorial Hall, Paeroa War Memorial Hall and Waihi Memorial Hall have also been cancelled. The unveiling of the Memorial Wall at Ngatea, planned for 25 April, has been postponed, with the new date still to be decided.

Community well-being top priority

Hauraki District Mayor Toby Adams says he is saddened by the cancellations, but the health and well-being of our communities is top priority,  

“It’s an absolute shame that we can’t honour these men and women in the way we’ve honoured them in the past, but that doesn’t mean we can’t acknowledge them in other ways,” he said.

 “Please use the day to remember, in your own way, those who have served and are still serving our country in conflicts and peacekeeping.”

National act of remembrance 

At a national level, there will be an act of remembrance at the National War Memorial. Although not open to the public or media, it will be recorded and broadcast after the event. 

Other events

Mayor Adams says any upcoming events that are Council run, or require Council involvement will be assessed as they arise, with advice sought from other agencies involved.

“There are many events being cancelled or postponed at the moment, which we realise is disappointing, but we need to apply common sense and use our best judgement in this situation which is changing every day,” he said.
