At this stage the Ōtukaikino Memorial Service will be held at the Ōtukaikino Reserve. In the event of poor weather a change of venue will be posted here on Sunday morning.

As  friends  of  Lamb  & Hayward the Ōtukaikino Reserve belongs to you.  Situated in the north of Christchurch, by Chaney’s Corner, ‘The Living Memorial’ is a safe haven for wildlife, birds and native plantings, and a sanctuary for us; it’s nature’s reminder that life continues.

You are welcome to bring your family and friends to the service as we remember our loved ones at Ōtukaikino.

Our annual ceremony is unique in that it is conducted outdoors and will be held rain or shine. There is shelter provided, but please come prepared, you may need warm clothing, an umbrella or a sunhat.

At Ōtukaikino we are holding hands with Mother Nature, the weather is out of our control.

If the weather makes the holding of this event unsafe at Ōtukaikino, it will be relocated to our Westpark Chapel at 467 Wairakei Road; this will be advised on our Facebook page,  Newstalk ZB and The Breeze community notices.
