Format change to Waiuku Anzac service



The Waiuku Anzac organising committee has made some changes to the traditional service in the War Memorial Hall after the parade to and from the Waiuku cenotaph.

Service organiser Bill Deed says that the new format at the hall will be one more leaning to a concert than a religious service. Some of the traditional segments will be retained, but will now include additional items from the Waiuku Anzac choir and the Sunset Coast Band Ensemble.

The programme at the Hall will start when the Auckland Drumline will do an outdoor item, followed by trumpeter Phillip Lloyd playing “Sunset” as the Hall flag is lowered.

Programmes will be available at the cenotaph as well as the Hall.

“We are hoping that the changed format will encourage more people to attend the function in the Hall,” said Bill.

Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
