Hi neighbours,

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.

Hi,
Like many living and working around Keri Keri, we have all noticed the increase in vehicles especially at peak times (7:30-9:00am and 4:30-5:30pm also lunchtime).Certainly not just caused by SH1 rebuild and diversion to SH10 .
Parking is at a premium now at most times and on most days.
I have just read a post in FB re the retirement village going in Hall Road with 200 units .
This effectively gives an increase in 200 plus vehicles and in addition to all the other building around the community will result in a significant increase in vehicles in and around KeriKeri.
I have watched on several occasions traffic from Hall Road desperately trying to turn right ,this is an accident waiting to happen yet I understand no alterations to the intersection will be made until a majority of the units are occupied.
We have a serious traffic management problem which needs to be rectified before the summer influx of visitors and with a relaxing of travel restrictions could be extra large.
