Howick ANZAC service

I attended the Howick ANZAC service today, There were literally thousands in attendance, both marching and watching. Real heartening to see.

Mayor Len Brown spoke along with a 16 year old who made the most wonderful speech. Also in attendance were the two councillors for Howick ward, Jami-Lee Ross and Sharon Stewart along with MP’s Pansy Wong and Maurice Williamson. Labour’s Ross Robertson was a no show. Kids from Elim Christian College were there along with the Principal and Teachers.

I think there were more there this year than last. Fantastic atmosphere.
