Community Event of the Year

Harry Sherwood.
THE annual New Norfolk Anzac Day observances have been named the winner of the Derwent Valley Council's award for Community Event of the Year.

The presentation was made by deputy mayor Ben Shaw as chairman of the council's Australia Day Committee. The award was accepted by Harry Sherwood from the New Norfolk RSL.

"The Anzac Day service has grown from strength to strength," Cr Shaw said when presenting the award on Monday. "With 2015 being the centenary of the Gallipoli landing, it is very appropriate to publicly acknowledge the New Norfolk RSL and the Anzac Day service," Cr Shaw said.

For many decades the New Norfolk RSL has organised marches and services at dawn and 11am every Anzac Day.
