Waikato District Mayor Allan Sanson, together with Turangawaewae Marae invites everyone to come together this Friday at Turangawaewae to watch the National Remembrance Service for the victims of the Christchurch mosques terrorist attack.
The event will start at 9:45am (seated) and the live broadcast of the service being held in Hagley Park in Christchurch will start at 10am.
The service will also be played live at our Raglan Office and Library from 10am.
“We welcome everyone in the Waikato district to attend and remember the victims and those affected by the tragic events that happened on 15 March 2019, says Waikato District Mayor Allan Sanson.
“It is important that we come together to remember those who lost their lives and show our support for our Muslim community.”
“It is an absolute tragedy what happened, however over the past two weeks it is our love and compassion that has defined us as New Zealanders, not hate. As our Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said you will never stand alone, we stand together.”
The National Remembrance Service is jointly led by the Government of New Zealand, the city of Christchurch, Ngāi Tahu and the Muslim community.
The order of service and more details will be announced later this week.
