Redland City Council honoured to again support ANZAC Day ceremonies

Redland City Council is reminding Redlands Coast residents and visitors to plan their travel around the region and to be aware of temporary road closures for local parades on ANZAC Day, Monday 25 April.

Mayor Karen Williams said Council was honoured to again support ANZAC Day ceremonies throughout Redlands Coast with events taking place at nine different locations on the mainland and on the islands.

“ANZAC Day is such a special event in Australia and on Redlands Coast where we have a significant population of veterans and a strong  groundswell of public and official support every year for marches and parades,” Cr Williams said.

“Council continues to support  ANZAC Day events across Redlands Coast through in-kind and financial support being provided across the city. This takes many different forms, from Council crews undertaking  maintenance work to ensuring that public spaces, parks, gardens and places like the Cleveland Cenotaph and ANZAC Centenary  Park are in the best condition, especially on ANZAC Day.

“Council also facilitates street closures and changed traffic conditions, and our SES volunteers will be on hand to assist with the various parades and events.

“Redland City Council is delighted that services will return to normal after two years of COVID restrictions and we’re proud to join with the community in paying our respects to the men and women of the armed services and in remembrance of those who made the ultimate sacrifice while serving Australia and New Zealand.”

Services and events will be held at the following locations: Cleveland, Redland Bay, North Stradbroke Island, Macleay Island, Russell Island, Lamb Island, Karragarra Island, Coochiemudlo Island, Redlands North Memorial Service.
