Noreuil Park in 2015?

ALBURY RSL sub-branch has been approached about breaking with tradition and staging the centenary Anzac Day services away from Monument Hill.

Noreuil Park has been thrown up as an alternative to cater for anticipated huge crowds next year.

Sub-branch president Graham Docksey said his personal preference was to stay at Monument Hill.

The dawn service yesterday attracted an estimated 2000 people before another 750 attended the 10am service.

“The conversation has started about whether this site is large enough to handle Anzac Day 2015,” Mr Docksey said.

“Some people have said we should do it somewhere else. But I think here is big enough.

“People have already approached me and said ‘it is going to be big and we need to have it somewhere else’.

“Noreuil Park has been thrown up as an option.”

Member for Farrer Sussan Ley, member for Albury Greg Aplin, Albury mayor Kevin Mack, council general manager Frank Zaknich and police Superintendent Beth Stirton were part of the official party for the 10am service.

Border Christian College was the host school this year with captains Jack Chmura and Lauren Gadowski taking part in proceedings.

They took part in the official wreath laying ceremony with other Albury primary and secondary schools.

The address was by Colonel Todd Ashurst.
