Local Event Cancelled: National Remembrance Service

Published: Wed 27 Mar 2019 04:55 PM
Regretfully the event announced earlier today to be held at Turangawaewae Marae to watch the National Remembrance Service for the victims of the Christchurch mosques terrorist attack, has been cancelled.
Mayor Allan Sanson said: “It is with regret that we have called off the event we were planning to hold on Friday.”
“We have taken advice from Police and the bottom line is that the security efforts required from many parties to hold an event like this at this time are too high.
The live broadcast of the service being held in Hagley Park in Christchurch will start at 10am. We encourage people to gather in their homes and workplaces to watch this.
The National Remembrance Service is jointly led by the Government of New Zealand, the city of Christchurch, Ngāi Tahu and the Muslim community.
