Hi everyone,

This year Anzac Day will be different.

In the midst of a pandemic, dawn Services are off the cards but Kiwis can still pay their respects on Saturday morning.

We are encouraged to stand at our letterbox, front door, balcony or essential place of work at 6am to remember the sacrifices service men and women have made for New Zealand.

How are you planning to mark the occasion?

If you are busy making poppies, decorating your home or something similar, we'd like to hear from you to contribute to our coverage of the event.

Email senior reporter Lawrence Gullery at lawrence.gullery@stuff.co.nz to get in touch.

Stay safe everyone.
