On Sunday 11 November a district-wide event will be held by the Hurunui District Council at the Amberley Domain to commemorate the signing of the treaty that ended WW1.

The event will begin with an ANZAC Day style parade through the domain to the northern side of the pavilion where the event will take place. This will be followed by a commemoration service and as a mark of respect, two minutes silence will be observed at 11am.

Highlights of the event will include a live firing of blank rounds from various artillery pieces, a flypast of Spitfires shortly after 11am, and the members of the Mounted Rifles who will attend the event. The event will pay homage to the 183 fallen soldiers from the Hurunui District.

The fallen soldiers’ crosses will be laid out in front of the council offices in Amberley from late October through to mid-November, when they will then be relocated to the Amberley Domain for the event.

Parking will be available in the southern area of the domain, adjacent to the playground. People are encouraged to bring a picnic lunch and deck chairs. Limited seating, a BBQ and tea & coffee will be provided.
