For a handful, ANZAC Day in Gordonton began at 6 this morning at the Cenotaph:

The crowds turned up at 10am for the main event, starting at the Hall, followed by the laying of wreaths at the Cenotaph.

The Ceremony was organised by the ANZAC committee of Gordonton and was chaired by Commander Brett Fottheringham.  Click here to see photographs from last year’s service.  Oh, and if you would like a copy of a pic, give Annette Taylor a yell.
