Justice of the Peace recognised for decades of service

MEMBER for Toowoomba North, Trevor Watts recently presented a special certificate to Mr Noel Baker in recognition of his 25 plus years of service as a Justice of the Peace for Queensland.

Noel first became a JP for Queensland on November 6, 1975.

Without a doubt, 2015 will be a big year for Noel, as he is also due to receive his 40 years of service certificate later this year.

Noel has devoted almost four decades of service towards this role, signing thousands of documents, statutory declarations and affidavits.

"I have thoroughly enjoyed this role which has connected me with the community and I look forward to continuing to serve as a Justice of the Peace for Queensland for many years to come." Noel Baker said.

"The importance of these volunteers' working within Queensland's legal system cannot be underestimated and I would like to once again pay tribute to Noel for his outstanding efforts in this role on behalf of the thousands of people that he has assisted over almost 40 years," Mr Watts said.
