We Say/You Say: Anzac Day

The Team from Community News

Hi Auckland,

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 your local community paper.

How to recycle broken glass

The Team from Auckland Council

Learn what to do when recycling broken glass. Large chunks are ok, as long as they are from grocery packaging. Always remember when recycling if in doubt, leave it out.

Item Required

Brandon from Sandringham

Does anyone have a dishwasher cutlery basket they don’t want. We got a dishwasher second hand and didn’t see it didn’t have a cutlery basket.

Would be greatly appreciated. 😊

Pickleball now Thursday evenings in Mt. Albert

Jeff from Mount Roskill

Some of you may remember me reaching out about an amazing sport, Pickleball, back in 2018-2019. Now, Pickleball is alive and well at a number of local centres. But until recently, not so much in the evenings. Now you can play with friends & whanau after work on Thursday evenings at the Mt. Albert YMCA. 6:45 -8:45 PM. Check it out on 773 New North Road some Thursday evening. Ask for Emily to show you the ropes. Only equipment needed for newbies is comfortable clothing and court shoes. And a $5 contribution to help pay stadium rental
