Brighton community remembers the fallen

BRIGHTON municipality’s community members attended Brighton Council’s official ANZAC Day service at Remembrance Park Pontville on ANZAC Day last month. The official address was given by Hobart author and historian Reg A. Watson whose edited address is below.

Afterwards, members from East Derwent Little Athletics Centre in conjunction with Brighton Council hosted some fun and games for children and adults. Events included a three-legged race, piggyback races, egg and spoon, sack races and finished with an old-fashioned tug of war.
