McQuade Park, Windsor was full on Monday to commemorate ANZAC Day.

Secretary of the Windsor RSL Sub-branch Leon Walker said while the crowd was not as large as they had expected, given they had anticipated people wanting to break free of COVID restrictions, they were still very pleased with the day.

“We are very, very pleased,” Mr Walker said.

“We had a big turnout, around 3000-plus, being conservative.

“The park was full.

“There were probably five or six hundred on the other side as well.

“We are extremely happy with how the services went.”

The Windsor ANZAC Day commemoration commenced with the Dawn Service at McQuade Park at 5;30 am followed by a short Veterans March past the Memorial.

Dawn Services were also conducted at Kurrajong War Memorial Park, Richmond War Memorial, and Wiseman’s Ferry ANZAC Memorial on Old Northern Road.

Morning Memorial services were held at Pitt Town and Wilberforce, both with record attendances.

ANZAC Day is a day set aside specifically to remember the service and sacrifice of those who have fought, and those who continue to fight, for the freedom we enjoy.

For the first time in three years, we were able to commemorate our diggers the way we were meant to - together.

We remember them on ANZAC Day lest we forget.
