No public ANZAC events to be held in 2020
The Returned and Services Association (RSA) has made the decision to cancel any public Anzac Day events. Taking this into consideration, and the mass gathering 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 been cancelled. The unveiling of the Memorial Wall at Ngatea, planned for 25 April, has also been postponed.
Ways you can get involved from within your bubble
The Ministry for Culture and Heritage has ideas for how people can safely commemorate ANZAC Day this year at mch.govt.nz/anzac-day.
ANZAC Day Commemoration Parades and Services are held around the District each year on 25 April.
