1.   Purpose of Report

1.1       The purpose of this report is for the Spreydon-Cashmere Community Board to consider its ANZAC Day 2017 Commemoration.

 

2.      Origin of Report

1.2       This report is staff generated to assist the Board to consider the manner in which it wishes to commemorate ANZAC Day 2017 and any associated funding requirements.

1.3       Over recent years the former Spreydon-CashmereCommunity Board has commemorated ANZAC Day with a local gathering at the Waltham Memorial Gates at Waltham Park within the Spreydon/Heathcote ward at mid- morning on ANZAC Day. The event was notified by a public notice in the newspaper and culminated with the laying of a commemorative wreath funded by the Board.

1.4       As a result of the changes as part of the last representation review Waltham Park is now within the Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board area.

1.5       There are a limited number of war memorials within the Spreydon-Cashmere Community Board area but there are some former soldiers graves in the historic Sydenham Cemetery and this would be an accessible venue for a commemoration.

 

 

2.   Staff Recommendations

That the Spreydon-Cashmere Community Board:

1.         Receives the information in the Spreydon-Cashmere Community Board ANZAC Day 2017 report.

2.         Decides to hold an ANZAC Day Commemoration at 10 am on 25 April 2017 at Sydenham Cemetery

3.         Requests that a public notice be placed in the Press advertising the ANZAC Day Commemoration and inviting local residents to attend.

4.         Allocates $200 from its 2016/17 Communicating with Communities fund for the purchase of a floral wreath to be laid as part of the Commemoration.

 

 

3.   Key Points

3.1       The Spreydon/Heathcote Community Board has recently commemorated ANZAC Day with a local gathering at the Waltham Memorial Gates at Waltham Park.

3.2       Waltham Park is not within the Spreydon-Cashmere Community Board area.

3.3       The Board should consider if it wishes to commemorate ANZAC Day with a local gathering at a venue within its area boundaries and determine the venue.

3.4       Sydenham cemetery could be considered as a possible venue.
