OBERON is gearing up to commemorate Anzac Day with services planned across the region.

With services already held in the village of Black Springs, Burraga will hold its service on April 23 at 10am. A service will also be held at Columbia Aged Care on April 24 at 10am.

The spirit of mateship will also be celebrated during the Oberon Tigers' match against Lithgow Workies on April 23, where members of the Oberon RSL Sub Branch will present a trophy for the best and fairest to an Oberon player.

On Anzac Day, a dawn service will be held in the grounds of the Oberon branch at 6am. The service will include the Australian, New Zealand and Turkish national anthems.

This will be followed by the Anzac March, which will leave from Oberon Council at 10am, followed by the Anzac Day Service at 11am. Captain Mark Manfield RAN DS MPP, representing the fleet commander, will be a special guest on the day.

The Diggers' Cup Perpetual Trophy will also be awarded at the golf day in the afternoon. Lest we forget.
