am writing a story regarding the cancellation of a number of Anzac
Commemorations around the country in the wake of the Christchurch terror
you please let me know if Rotorua's Anzac services will be going ahead as per
usual and, if yes, what has been planned for 2019.
From Arts and Culture Manager Stewart Brown:
have no plans at this time to cancel the service or the march. Our team are
liaising with the local police in regards to security requirements for the
is understandable that people are wary of large gatherings following the tragic
events in Christchurch last month however the safety of guests and attendees is
our number one priority and we will continue to work with police to manage
risks before and during the event.
details of the day’s events are still being finalised however the services will
follow the same format as previous years:
Dawn service at Ohinemutu
9am - Public march from
Memorial Gate to the Sportsdrome
9.30 – 10.30am - Civic Service
at the Sportsdrome
Field of Remembrance will also be in place in the Government Gardens at the
Cenotaph from 17 April.
The Dawn Service is organised by the Te Arawa Maori Returned Services League Inc. You may need to go directly to
them if you want any specifics on what they have organised.
