Celebrating a Special Anniversary?
The office of Paul Fletcher MP can organise official anniversary messages for constituents celebrating a special birthday or wedding anniversary. Depending on the milestone you can receive personal congratulations from the Prime Minister, Governor-General or The Queen.
The Prime Minister will send a message of congratulations to people turning 90 years of age or more.
The Queen and Governor-General will send a message on a 100th birthday. On request, the Prime Minister and the Governor-General will write again every year and the Queen will write again every five years.
The Prime Minister and Governor-General send messages to couples celebrating 50 years of marriage and subsequent wedding anniversaries.
The Queen sends messages to couples celebrating 60 years of marriage and will write every five years after that on request.
When to Arrange the Message
You can make arrangements for anniversary messages up to three months before the celebration. You can also request a belated message up to one month after the birthday or wedding anniversary has passed. You must allow at least one month for the office to guarantee delivery of letters.
Where Will the Message Be Delivered?
Messages can be delivered directly to the recipient or to a care-of address for surprises.
How to Arrange a Message
To arrange an anniversary message, you can call the Office of Paul Fletcher MP on (02) 9465 3950 or fill out the form below.
You will need to provide supporting documentation like birth certificates or marriage certificates. If these are not available you can provide a statutory declaration. Statutory declaration forms are available at any post office.
Where appropriate, your request to the Prime Minister will be passed on to the Governor-General and the Queen so you only have to make one application.
