This coming Saturday, the second Remembrance Service will give an opportunity to remember those who died following the Christchurch mosque attacks that happened on March 15, 2019.
51 people died from the shootings at the Al Noor and Linwood mosques. Many others who survived were injured and traumatised.
The National Remembrance Service will be held at Christchurch Arena. Due to COVID-19, last year, the Remembrance Service was cancelled.
This year it is able to go through as Christchurch is at Alert Level 1, but physical distancing and certain measures will be put in place to keep everyone safe from the virus.
Mask wearing will be suggested, but it is not required. Sani Squad members will be attending with NZ COVID Tracer App QR Codes.
A Portrait of Remembrance will be put on screen at the event for those who died, and the names will be read.
If travelling, allow for plenty of time to get to the event as some roads around Christchurch Arena will be closed to traffic and pedestrians.
Bringing bags to the event is strictly not being advised.
The event will be live streamed with Christchurch City Council.
