‘Go to a cafe!’

Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS -

I am usu­ally proud to be a ‘‘Grey Lyn­nian’’. We are a di­verse sub­urb, with many tal­ents and a great sense of com­mu­nity.

Not so on An­zac Day at the Grey Lynn RSA ser­vice. To all those peo­ple who chat­ted through pro­ceed­ings, if that is what you came for, go to a cafe!

Granted the loud speaker sys­tem was poor, but if you had ob­served man­ners and a re­spect­ful si­lence, maybe we could have heard some­thing.

Rather than get any more an­gry, I went home early and lis­tened to the Welling­ton me­mo­rial ser­vice where the tui song could be heard in the back­ground, the crowd was so quiet.
