Queen's honours for three New Norfolk people

A NEW Norfolk woman and two men with local origins have been named in today's Australia Day Honours List. Professor Kate Warner will be made a Member of the Order of Australia (AM) for her significant service to the law, particularly in the areas of legal education and reform, and to the community.

The significance of Professor Warner's award is reflected in it being featured on the front page of today's Sunday Tasmanian. The online version can be read here.

Also to be admitted as a Member of the Order of Australia today is lawyer Tim Bugg, while journalist Peter Boyer will receive the Medal of the Order of Australia (OAM). Both men grew up in New Norfolk.

Mr Bugg, of Sandy Bay, will receive his award for significant service to the law, particularly through executive roles with professional legal organisations, and to the community. Mr Boyer, of Fern Tree, has been recognised for his service to conservation and the environment, particularly in the field of climate science.
