Mr LYONS (Bass) (13:58): I rise to congratulate Mrs Patricia Wellington, who was recognised in the recent Queen's Birthday Honours. Patricia has worked since 1980 with the Launceston Horticultural Society. This society is 173 years old and has a thriving 150 members. Mrs Wellington has been president on three occasions. She has been a committee member since 1980 and a show director since 1997. Patricia said:

It's an honour to be part of such an old organisation and it's so easy when you belong to something and like working for it.

Mrs Wellington has made a great contribution to our community. I am pleased to say that there are many more like her in the electorate of Bass, all doing their bit for our great community. I thank Patricia for all her hard work and dedication and congratulate her on being one of the 16 Tasmanian recipients of the Queen's Birthday Honours.

The SPEAKER: Order! The time for members' statements has expired.
