Permission obtained for remembrance activities
Captain Simon Reay Atkinson, who normally leads the Anzac Day ceremony at Hardys Bay, obtained permission from police to conduct some remembrance activities.
Flags at the cenotaph at Hardys Bay Community Club were lowered to half mast at 5am by Simon, with Lyn and Cate Cotterell of Killcare Rural Fire Brigade.
Members of the community gathered on their driveways throughout the neighbourhood to hear the Last Post played at 6am.
Two members of the Armed Forces stood on the driveway of the club at 6am.
During the day people visited the cenotaph to lay flowers or a wreath, as part of their exercise routine.
Flags were raised at the cenotaph at 5pm to complete the event.
