A large contingent of the Methven community gathered at the Arch of Remembrance, in MacDonald Street, on Tuesday morning to march for the annual ANZAC day service held in the Mount Hutt Memorial Hall.
The Methven Lions, Rural Fire Service, St Johns, Scouts and Guides joined the Methven Pipe Band and representatives of the NZ Army to lead the public down Main Street to the gathering point outside. The New Zealand flag was lowered by local resident, Cory Quinn, before the public were invited to the service inside the hall.
ANZAC day is now a national day of remembrance in Australia and New Zealand of those who served and died in all wars, and peace keeping operations and the contribution and suffering of all those who have served.
