The community was outraged after the announcement that three of the largest suburban Anzac dawn services were heavily restricted due to the inability to meet COVID requirements.

Thankfully, Premier Steven Marshall has stepped in and offered staff and financial support in order for the Semaphore, Morphett Vale and Brighton RSL to increase their capacity and go ahead as usual.

Premier Marshall said, “We have reached out and offered all the support we possibly can to make sure these (dawn services) go ahead.”

He said the RSL sub branches could not be forced to go ahead with the services but would have the support to do so if they wanted to.

“I think we will find the negotiations will continue, but I think that these dawn services will go ahead.”

As one of the most important days of the year, it is important for everyone to be able to pay their respects at a memorial and reflect on the sacrifices of our Anzacs.

“It’s still going to be modified, but we want to make sure that as much as possible it can go ahead.” Premier Marshall said.


Erin & Soda added their support earlier saying “we will find a way to increase resources maybe this can happen.” Listen to what they had to say below.
