Kāpiti Coast community encouraged to attend National Remembrance Service in Wellington
Kāpiti Coast Mayor K Gurunathan is encouraging the Kāpiti Coast community to join people from across the region in Wellington this Friday to commemorate the 50 people who lost their lives in the Christchurch mosques terrorist attack.
Mayor Gurunathan said the National Remembrance Service will be simultaneously broadcast live from Christchurch to an event in Wellington between 10am and 11am on Friday 29 March.
“Coming together as a nation to pay tribute to the victims of this barbaric attack is an important part of the grieving process and I welcome the move by the Wellington City Council to host an event for our region.
“The Police have advised that local resources will be diverted to Wellington for the day so I urge people who are thinking about traveling into the city to watch the service to consider using public transport or to share a ride with friends and whanau.”
Details of the service, including where people can come together to watch the National Remembrance Service in Wellington, will be announced later in the week.
Mayor Gurunathan confirmed the Kāpiti Coast District Council would be supporting the Wellington event. He said the Council would not be looking to host a similar event locally for people to gather to watch the service.
