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.

Slashed tyres

Anne from Rangiora

On the afternoon of Saturday 8 May our vehicle was parked at the car park at the end of West Belt Rangiora, think it’s called Groyne 1 car park. We took our small grandson for a bike ride along the track where the trees have been removed. We arrived back to the vehicle half an hour later to find our two back tyres slashed. Whatever makes people do this. Lowlifes I think.
Tyres General from Amberley came to our rescue. Great people. Beware of parking your vehicles in any car parks around Rangiora especially in the weekends. Many people have had their windows smashed as well. Perhaps more police presence in the community might work.
