Beaudesert turns up for Anzac Day dawn service

FOR the fist time since 2019 a massive crowd turned up to pay their respects at the Beaudesert RSL Sub-Branch dawn service.

A-Choired Taste was front and centre to sing the national anthem and Beaudesert Police officers closed the road for the duration.

Town leaders, veterans and local residents laid wreaths at the cenotaph on William Street after a prayer service offered by Rev David Lunniss.

The service was led this year by Beaudesert Sub-Branch president John Forbe-Smith instead of the Mayor.

Scenic Rim Regional Council was represented by Cr Division 4 Councillor Michael Enright.

Senior Sergeant Ken Murray laid a wreath on behalf of the police service, with local paramedics and firefighters also in attendance to lay wreaths on behalf of their services.

After the reading of The Ode a bugler played the last post and the crowd observed a minute's silence.

Many in attendance then went to The Club Beaudesert to enjoy a gunfire breakfast with more entertainment by A-Choired taste.
