Tweed Daily News - - NEWS -

THREE Tweed res­i­dents are among the 1007 awards an­nounced as part of the Queen’s Birth­day 2018 Hon­ours List on Mon­day.

Gover­nor Gen­eral Sir Pe­ter Cos­grove con­grat­u­lated all the awards re­cip­i­ents - which this year in­cluded a record num­ber of women - which recog­nise a di­verse range of con­tri­bu­tions across all fields, in­clud­ing pro­fes­sional en­deav­ours, com­mu­nity work, the ADF and emer­gency ser­vices.

“To all re­cip­i­ents, I of­fer my deep­est con­grat­u­la­tions, ad­mi­ra­tion and re­spect for your con­tri­bu­tion to our na­tion,” Sir Cos­grove said.

“We are for­tu­nate as a com­mu­nity to have so many out­stand­ing peo­ple will­ing to ded­i­cate them­selves to the bet­ter­ment of our na­tion and it is only fit­ting that they have to­day been recog­nised through the Aus­tralian Hon­ours sys­tem.

“Since 1975 th­ese awards have helped to de­fine, en­cour­age and re­in­force Aus­tralian goals and val­ues.”
