When you buy next year's diary, don't forget to mark an important date - the Anzac service on April 25. It will be held as usual at the street memorial that stands in Carlton Gore Road between St Barnabas Church and Roseneath School. The memorial was unveiled on 10 November, 1917 and is the first permanent memorial in Wellington to those who died in World War I. It is inscribed with the names of Roseneath School old boys who died during WWI.
The service is becoming more popular every year — about 170 people attended the last service. Because of its growing popularity, plans are afoot to improve the area around the memorial.
