Happy 2015 Queens Birthday Weekend

Bell Block celebrates the 2015 Queen’s Birthday. A public holiday is on the first Monday in June and is a full public holiday with schools, banks, government offices and most businesses closed. The Queen’s birthday is actually on 21 April (1926) but it is celebrated on various dates across the commonwealth to fit with each country’s spread of public holidays. One of the official activities of this public holiday is the release of the Queen’s Birthday Honours’ List where the Queen makes appointments to the Order of New Zealand, which includes Orders, Orders of Merit, Dames, Knights, Companions, Officers and more. These appointments are nearly always based on a person’s services to the community or the nation. The other special event of this public holiday is that it heralds the official opening of the ski season in New Zealand, something our country is famous for.
