Due to New Zealand moving to the Red Traffic Light in the COVID-19 protection framework, the Hawke’s Bay Earthquake Memorial Service, scheduled to take place at the Waiapu Cathedral, Napier on Saturday 5 February, is no longer able to proceed with guests.
Napier City Council and the Diocese of Waiapu have determined that the safest way to proceed is to hold the service with speakers only. Survivors, guests and members of the public are invited to watch online via the Cathedral’s Facebook page from the safety of their own homes.
The service can be viewed on Waiapu Anglican Cathedral of St John the Evangelist, Napier Facebook Page https://m.facebook.com/WaiapuCathedral/
Napier Mayor, Kirsten Wise, says she’s disappointed the event can’t go ahead as planned, however the difficult decision was made to ensure the health and safety of the Napier community.
“The Earthquake Memorial gives us the opportunity to pay our respects to those who lost their lives as well as reflect on the events that shaped our City. I hope you can join us, albeit virtually, on this significant occasion,” Kirsten says.
