Ric Carlyon - Monday, June 06, 2016

As well as Dawn Jones (see below) other Auckland Justices of the Peace are named in today’s Queen’s Birthday Honours, receiving the Queen’s Service Medal (QSM).  
Karnail Badhan JP of Pukekohe was the founder of Ambedkar Sports & Cultural Club and has been President since 2014. He is currently National Coordinator for Global Organisation of People of Indian Origin (GOPIO) New Zealand and a member of GOPIO International.
Raymond Garth Beatson JP of Bayswater has long been an advocate for Vietnam veterans and their families and since 2012 led restoration of Kaitaia's World war One memorial, the first-ever in New Zealand. It was rededicated on its 100th Anniversary, 24th March last year.  
Cliff Deery JP was a foundation member of the Kawakawa Bay Volunteer Fire Brigade in 1974 and has since served at every level of the Brigade, including as Chief Fire Officer for the past 20 years. He has served on a range of community, school and agricultural groups and volunteers his time to the Kawakawa Bay Health Clinic and its First Response Unit.
Billie Jordan from Waiheke is in the list of those made Members of the New Zealand Order of Merit. Just a week or so ago Billie was guest at the Justices of the Peace Association’s luncheon.  She founded The Hip-Operation Crew, a hip-hop dance group consisting of 22 members aged 68 to 96 years old. As those Justices attending the luncheon heard from Billie in an inspirational address, the group uses hip hop dance as a vehicle to form stronger connections with young people and to promote attitudinal change in society towards the elderly.
