Halcombe Anzac Service 2019

Halcombe Anzac Day Service Thursday 25th April 2019 - “The Homecoming”. A Halcombe Anzac Day service is not your typical service. Our aim is to create an event that is unique and special, that brings our community together and helps us to understand the history that formed our district. As this year marks the last year of the official 5-year commemoration of World War 1, we plan to make this year’s service the pinnacle event, with a re-enactment of our local soldiers' ‘Homecoming’ in 1919. So it will be “All Aboard” on 25th April for a steam train excursion, from Feilding to Halcombe, for our spectacular Anzac parade and service, followed by lunch, with memorabilia on display and an art exhibition in the Halcombe Memorial Hall. Entry to the Anzac service is free. Timetable: At 9:30 am, the community welcomes the Homecoming Train into Halcombe. Passengers will be met with a good old-fashioned ceremony! Time for tea & coffee before our Anzac Parade at 10.30 am and traditional Anzac service at 10:45 am. Lunch follows the service, with a chance to view the art exhibition and war memorabilia in the Memorial Hall display. Steam train departs Halcombe at 2:00 pm. Photographs Donated By Jess Manthey
