MEMBERS of the community are invited to attend several local ANZAC Day services this year.
Shire President David Lavell said services would be held in Mundaring, Chidlow, Greenmount and Bellevue.
"This area is steeped in history and has a close connection to many of the soldiers who trained in the area," he said.
"The Shire is proud to support services across the whole Shire."
Following upgrades in 2014/15, visitor capacity at Blackboy Hill has increased significantly.
"Last year's 100 year centenary of ANZAC Day saw thousands of people across the Shire honour those who fought for our country," he said.
"Increased capacity at Blackboy Hill ensured hundreds of people could pay their respects, with the site accessible for all."
