(Due to technical difficulties there have not been posts on this website for some time.)
Theme for this year’s Anzac Day will be the commemoration of 100 years since the Gallipoli campaign.
We are honoured that our guests this year will include descendants and relatives of the 11 AGL employees who were killed in this campaign together with relatives of others on the Memorial.
Contact has been made with many relatives of those on the Memorial and we are always keen to get messages from others via this website.
This is an open invitation for relatives to contact us and to participate in our Anzac Day ceremonies.
This year local residents in the knitting groups have created red poppies which we will display around the memorial. Each poppy will be individually named. There will be one named for each of the 45 soldiers on our Memorial plus others requested by local residents (via a donation to Legacy) in memory of someone special to them.
