It is with great delight that I advise  you that one of our Gold Star Members has been recognised in the Queen’s Birthday Honours, This is  retired QFF Keith Nixon( MNZM) of Lower Hutt.

Keith was made a Member of the New Zealand Order of Merit in this year’s Queens Birthday Honours.

This is truly deserved and is in recognition of his work over many years with the New Zealand Fire fighters welfare Society.

Keith saw a  need over 30 years ago for the welfare needs of Firefighters and from that early belief he has never stopped working for fire fighters  in this area.

I am sure you will all join with President Dennis Bristow and the executive of the WPFBGSA (Inc) in congratulating Keith on this recognition.


John May
