AFTER a year's hiatus due to COVID-19 restrictions, the Singleton community will once again gather to participate in several Anzac Day commemorative services on Sunday, April 25.

Although scaled back with attendance capped, the morning will begin with two dawn services in Singleton - one at Burdekin Park and one at the Lone Pine Barracks - and a main service in Burdekin Park at 10:30am for an 11am start.

There will also be an Anzac Day march, which starts from 9.30am on Ryan Avenue near Burns Lane, then goes straight onto Hunter Street and into Burdekin Park, where the service will be held.

All participants must register prior to attendance.

President of the Singleton RSL Sub Branch Mark Cederblad said the main dawn service will be held at the Army Base, with the smaller dawn service planned for Burdekin Park.

The front gates at the Singleton School of Infantry - Australian Army at Lone Pine Barracks, Range Road, Singleton 2331, will be open from 4.30am for a 5.30am start, and those attending must posses a ticket is a requirement for entry.

The only entry point will be at the front gate opposite the Infantry Museum and marshals will be available to assist with directions to parking locations.

"The public are encouraged to attend the service at the base which is free entry," Mr Cederblad added.

The smaller dawn service will be held at 5am for 5.30am start at Burdekin Park.

"The march will step off at 10am from Ryan Ave and march up Hunter Street to the park," he said.

This year, only four school students, who have already been selected, will march and lay a wreath on behalf of the combined schools of the district.

Entry will be by means of 'Sticky Tickets' for the town service and 'Eventbrite' tickets for the Army Base service.
