A community vigil was held on 22 March at Peace Park - Civic Place in Katoomba, in memory of the victims of the Christchurch tragedy and as a gesture of support for New Zealand and Muslim communities more broadly.

Council supported this community initiative in partnership with local community organisations.

We all strive for a safe, inclusive community, locally and globally. This vigil provided an opportunity for the Blue Mountains community to express grief at this tragic incident and to stand united for a kinder future. More details can be found online here
