Anzac Day 2021 in the Nowra area will go ahead, COVID permitting, but with some major changes.
After last year's services were cancelled due to the pandemic, small services at both Greenwell Point and Nowra are planned to go ahead this year.
But unfortunately there will be no marching at either event.
The Nowra RSL Sub-Branch will hold a short dawn service at Greenwell Point, beginning at 5.45am, COVID permitting.
Seating will be provided for invited guests, and it is anticipated the service will be less than 30 minutes.
Flash back to Anzac Day 2019
Guests will be given the opportunity to lay a wreath in the front of the memorial.
There will also be provision for members of the public to lay wreaths.
In Nowra there will not be a commemorative service, but the sub-branch and others who wish to, will be invited to lay wreaths at 11am.
That will be accompanied by a piper from the Shoalhaven City Pipes and Drums.
The highly popular Light up the Dawn initiative is also again being suggested as a way for the public to pay their respects.
Of course, all these plans could change before Anzac Day, depending on health advice at the time.
Anyone who attends either event must abide by the NSW Government COVID regulations in place on the day.
