Queen’s Service Medal For Havelock North JP Alison Thomson

Event Details

It was a local MP who encouraged Alison Thomson to become a Justice of the Peace – so she did.

“Surprised” was the first reaction that came to mind when she found out she was a recipient of the Queen’s Service Medal for services to the community.

Not only does the former school principal serve as a JP in Hastings, but she was also the president of the Royal Federation of New Zealand Justices Associations from 2009 to 2011, a position she considers a personal highlight.

“I do these things but never expect to be rewarded,” she said.
