No disrespect but very very sad this closure, 'Club metro' sounds yuppie - ish, and in no way reflects our servicemen and women... AND, Free fees for all the olds i reckon...just saying.

Si where do they acknowledge the veterans. The RSA letters acknowledged those men n women who fought the frontline, who nursed n doctorised the wounded n injured?

Pfffft. ..

No disrespect..buy I am a club metro member and I am not getting my e-mails to let me know what is happening there during the week..please can you help me to solve this Thanx Rachael Hampton

Awesome let's get on with it

It was a really special moment this morning when we finally got to unveil and bless our refurbished Lion Monument on the Veteran Steps. Many of you will have noticed the work going on and the monument looks stunning, although in true cat fashion it took some coaxing to be revealed.

Thanks to all those who have made the restoration happen. It’s important that we treasure our heritage, especially when it’s such a significant piece of our community.

At a blessing this morning, the Lion Monument was unveiled after many months of restoration work. It's great to have it overlooking the War Memorial Centre again. ... See MoreSee Less

The Korean War began 25th June 1950 when communist North Korean Forces crossed the 38th Parallel into South Korea. New Zealand was one of the first countries to answer the United Nations Security Council's call for combat assistance.

Some 5000 New Zealanders served in Korea between 1950 and 1957, 3700 were members of the Army's Kayforce and 1300 served on the six New Zealand Navy Frigates (including the KANIERE), which were active around the Korean Peninsular. Forty-five New Zealand servicemen, including two Navy personnel, died in Korea and two others serving with Australian forces.

A terrible war by all accounts Marie, we should remember with pride these brave people who served in the Korean War not only the poor souls who lost their lives, but the men who returned who very rarely spoke of their traumas. Hope your dad has a catch up with his friends to talk of their shared memories. 😢😢 Xx

We will remember them!!
