I am also happy to send messages for milestone wedding anniversaries. These messages can also be received from the Prime Minister, Premier, Governor and Federal MP. To arrange a message please contact my office at least four weeks before the birthday or anniversary to allow time for processing and postage. You will need to supply supporting documentation such as a birth or marriage certificate. If the document is not available you can provide a statutory declaration.
