AUCKLAND LEGEND: Bob Kerridge, of the SPCA, is the guest speaker at this Friday's meeting of the Ladies Probus Club of Howick. Plans to recognise sacrifice THE Auckland Council will plan and lead an integrated World War I centennial pro- gramme in the super-city from 2014-2018 as a way to mark the 100th anniversary of the global confict. Councillor Sandra Coney, who chairs the council’s parks, rec- reation and heritage forum, says it recommends establishing a political steering group to guide the project. “World War I shaped who we are today as Aucklanders and New Zealanders,” she says. “We owe a huge debt to the young men and women of Auck- land who sacrifced their lives, health and prospects for the love of their country. “The centenary gives us a chance to honour them and to better understand who they were, and the impact of the war on their families and communi- ties,” says Ms Coney. The forum suggests the steer- ing group is led by Mayor Len Brown and includes local board representatives, councillors and an Independent Maori Statutory Board member. “I can’t think of a more ftting way of putting those words into practise than the centennial pro- gramme being proposed,” says Mr Brown. The steering group will con- sider initiatives such as a World War I heritage trail on public parks and land, marking the 40-50 sites of signifcance to the region’s role in the war. Military cenotaphs, memo- rials and war graves will be cleaned, restored and if neces- sary upgraded. There are also plans for a com- munity-based project to collect information and stories about the servicemen and women.
