ANZAC Day 2017

ANZAC Day 2017

A wreath-laying service to mark Anzac Day will be held at the War Memorial Clock Tower in Seymour Square on Tuesday, 25 April.

Veterans and the families of those who fought in past conflicts will be joined by personnel from RNZAF Base Woodbourne in the parade through the town’s streets to Seymour Square.

At 11.00 am, Marlborough Mayor John Leggett will open the Anzac Day service. This year, addresses will be given by RAAF Squadron Leader Marcus Watson from the Australian High Commission and RAF Master Air Crewman Andrew Burrows from the British High Commission. Marlborough Boys’ College students, brothers Justin and Harrison Cook, will lead the singing.

Blenheim’s central streets will be closed from 10.00 am for one hour while the area around the War Memorial from High Street through to Alfred Street will not re-open until noon.

Earlier in the day, the Mayor will attend the Anzac Day services at the Awatere Memorial Hall in Seddon and at Renwick while Deputy Mayor Terry Sloan will be at the Dawn Parade in Picton.

The Mayor will also attend a service to be held in Ward the day before Anzac Day, at 2.00 pm on Monday 24 April.
