There’s been a catch-up in acknowledging the work of Justices of the Peace for the services they have provided - in some cases individuals who have served their communities for more than 50 years.
Following laborious work to research and prove individuals’ service by the Royal Federation of NZ Justices Associations and the Ministry of Justice, Long Service Certificates have been made available for eligible Auckland members.
These Justices of the Peace will receive a special invitation to this year’s Regional Conference/Annual General Meeting on Sunday 28th August at Alexandra Park to have their certificates formally presented. There are some 150 eligible members… and the collective service they have given is phenomenal. If each certificate averages 40 years, a total of about 6,000 years’ service will be celebrated on the day!
The Auckland Association of Justices of the Peace has thanked the Royal Federation and the Ministry for its work behind-the-scenes to enable the presentations.
