|Congratulations for obeying the rules, staying home, and keeping us all safe, making Level 3 so much a success that we can leave it behind and cautiously move to Level 2! There are still rules to obey with distancing, hygiene, and limits on gatherings. This will be reviewed in 2 weeks so let’s hang in there and do what we are told.
The Greenhithe Fire Service ANZAC Day message was very poignant this year. Many neighbours stood silently outside their gates at dawn and the Last Post and National Anthem played across the suburb. Thanks also to Syd and all those who laid wreaths at the Memorial in Roland Road and decorated their letterboxes.
