BRIGHTON Municipality residents honoured our war veterans at a special ceremony at Remembrance Park, Pontville on ANZAC Day. After a year when we couldn’t gather because of the pandemic, the ceremony was particularly moving and demonstrated our strong community spirit with those who participated at the event, at the dawn service or in front of their homes, honouring those who served in the wars and who those who gave their lives.
The ANZAC Day speech was presented by Deputy Mayor Barbara Curran who focused on Women in War, those who contributed and who continue to serve in the armed forces. Cr Curran’s speech followed a special welcome by Brighton Mayor Tony Foster.
