Local organisations to recognise Queen’s Jubilee with community tree-plantings

Community tree-planting events will be held by local organisations and schools across Hinkler to commemorate Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II’s Jubilee.

Federal Member for Hinkler Keith Pitt congratulated the eight successful recipients of the Planting Trees for the Queen’s Jubilee program.

“The Queen has dedicated her life to the Commonwealth and Australia for the past 70 years and to recognise this significant milestone the Planting Trees for the Queen’s Jubilee program was established to leave a long-lasting reminder of her service to our local communities,” Mr Pitt said.

“The community tree-planting events to be held this year will celebrate the Jubilee and honour the memory of the Queen and her years of service.

“The Queen has visited Australia 16 times and on many of these visits has planted trees at community events and ceremonies, so this program is a fitting way to commemorate the Jubilee.

“Congratulations to the following successful organisations: Bundaberg District Women Veterans Inc, CLS Ability Enterprises Ltd, Burrum District Golf Club, Bundaberg Christian College, Woodgate and District Residents Association, Bundaberg South State School, Nikenbah Historical Railway Village and QCWA Division Burnett.”

Details of the community tree-planting events will be determined by each organisation. Bundaberg District Women Veterans will hold a ceremonial planting at the War Nurses Memorial Park on 17 July 2022 at 10am.
