Anzac Day is a time to reflect on the contribution made by our past and present service men and women who have displayed great courage, discipline and self-sacrifice in service to their country.

The Devonport RSL is again hosting this year’s Anzac Day ceremonies at the Devonport Cenotaph, Victoria Parade on Tuesday, 25 April.

A Dawn Service will be held at the Cenotaph commencing at 5.45am. The 11am commemorative ceremony will be preempted by the march to the Cenotaph commencing at 10.45am, assembly is outside the Devonport Senior Citizens Club  During this service a collection for Legacy will be conducted.

Devonport City Council is asking anyone who wishes to lay a wreath to contact the Customer Service department at our Fenton Way offices on 6424 0511.

The Regional Youth Survey remains open for feedback.  We want to hear from young people along the Coast, aged 10 to 18 years with their ideas and suggestions about how we can improve our towns and communities.

Not only will their feedback be taken on board and used to help create a plan which will guide the way our local councils and organisations who work with young people can better place young people at the heart of their activities, policies and services.

It’s all about how our communities can meet the needs of our young people in the future. 

By completing the survey, they also have the option of entering a prize draw with over $1000 worth of prizes.

The Regional Youth Survey can be completed at www.speakupdevonport.com.au.
