Commemoration event for 2nd anniversary of Canterbury Quake

1 February 2013

Commemoration event for the second anniversary of the 22 February 2011 Canterbury earthquake

Planning is underway by Christchurch City Council for a Civic Memorial Service to commemorate the second anniversary of the 22 February 2011 Canterbury earthquake.

The memorial service will be in Latimer Square on Friday 22 February 2013 at noon. The service, co-hosted by the Anglican ChristChurch Cathedral, will be for the community and will include one minute’s silence at 12.51pm.

Mayor Bob Parker says two years on, the effect of this unique event is still being felt in the daily lives of all Cantabrians.

“The commemorative service will be a time where we can gather as a community to remember our community’s strength and kindness in the days following the earthquake and to take heart in our city’s future.

“We have all come along way in the last two years as individuals and as a city. Christchurch has risen to the challenge and while remedial work is still progressing, Christchurch still has much to offer and we are looking forward to a positive future as we re-invent our world-class city”, Mayor Parker says.

Other events led by various groups will also be held around the city at that time.
