Dear Wellington - ANZAC Day will look a little different for us this year - however there are many ways for you to acknowledge the incredible men and women who have served our communities and given their lives for our country.

We invite you to share a memory or photo to commemorate this special day on Neighbourly below. It could be a story of a member in your family who served - or perhaps the way you and your family celebrate ANZAC Day each year. (It might even be a photo of your freshly baked can't be-beaten ANZAC cookies).

We also invite you to take part in Stand at Dawn and join us at 6:00 am on Saturday 25 April. Stand at your letterbox, at the front door, in your lounge rooms, balconies, in your driveway. Wherever you are in the world, stand with us and take a moment to remember our fallen – but please stay within your ‘bubble’.

On 25th we commemorate ANZAC Day, a day when the combined forces of New Zealand and Australia (Australia New Zealand Army Corps) landed in Gallipoli and effectively entered the war. Amongst the ANZACs were Indian and Chinese soldiers of both New Zealand and Australia. In addition to the ANZACs, British and French troops in Gallipoli there were also Indian troops from India in that theatre.


This Shradhanjali (Tribute) www.youtube.com... is a small effort by Ekta to honour and remember these men.


We salute these men.

Stories from the ANZACs

ANZAC Day will be marked a little differently this year. We’ll be warm and cosy at home and The Last Post won’t start until you press play. But one thing will be the same – remembrance.

To help us remember those who served and understand what ‘to serve’ meant, Ryman recorded their ANZAC resident’s stories. Some are humorous, others are tragic and eye-opening, but they all offer insight into the courage, bravery, and determination required to serve.

What better way to remember than to read the memories of those who were there?

With the evenings getting cooler, we have had a number of enquiries regarding chimney cleaning during the Level 4 Covid 19 Lockdown. Fire and Emergency NZ has received an update regarding chimney sweepers being essential service for health and safety reasons.

Tradespeople:
Tradespeople can do maintenance if it is to maintain the necessities of life or critical to safety. This includes electricians, plumbers and builders.

If you have safety concerns about your fire place or chimney, contact your local chimney sweep or plumber and have a discussion with them on the way forward. They may have questions such as have you got any other form of heating? What are the symptoms/how urgent is the job?

If you have the tools and experience and are going to clean out your chimney yourself, be safe. We dont want to have to turn up to load you into an ambulance or lower you off the roof!
