On the 25th of March, we completed our Queens Jubilee Tree Project with the unveiling of the plaque at the Beckley Park Market. Chairman Richard represented the committee and spoke highly of all those involved in the project. Cr Kylie Grzybek kindly unveiled the plaque and praised the work we are undertaking at Beckley Park and the interaction we are having with the community. Kylie is a great supporter of Beckley Park and we are extremely grateful for her ongoing support.
This was a simple but enjoyable ceremony that was attended by representatives from the Rotary Clubs that supported the project, Chris and Bernie from the Harness Club who help us care for the trees, and members of the BPCoM.
Our thanks must go to Chairman Richard Oakley, Max Findlay and Gary Beckley in their efforts to have this project completed.
I will now follow up with the Planting of Trees for the Queen's Jubilee Team from the Dept of Industry, Science and Resources to submit our final report on the unveiling of the plaque and to finalise the terms of our agreement regarding the project.
