Portobello will hold its annual Anzac Day service at the Portobello Museum war memorial on April 25th, 9.30 am. The service will commemorate those servicemen and women who served in military campaigns and pay homage to those local men who were killed while on military service. Portobello School will take part in a reflection of what Anzac Day means at the service and family members and community groups will lay wreathes at the memorial.
Anzac Day is an important event in the Portobello community just as it is for many New Zealand communities. It is a time to remember events that have taken men and women far from their communities and their loved ones, some of whom did not return. We hope to see everyone participate in the service and take a moment to reflect on the meaning of Anzac Day.
